Are Morocco’s borders open?

After months of a state of emergency and a stop to tourism in order to fight the Covid-19 pandemic, Morocco reopened its air borders in mid-June 2021. However, the Kingdom took the decision to suspend the all flights to and from France from November 28, 2021 and for an indefinite period following the surge in cases of Covid-19 in France.

Unvaccinated French (and other foreigners) passing through Morocco must carry out a 10-day controlled quarantine, at their expense, in one of the structures previously designated by the Moroccan authorities, with a control PCR test on the 9th day.

The Moroccan government announced in mid-November the lifting of the national curfew in force for more than a year because of “the improvement of the epidemiological situation” in the kingdom. This decision follows “the positive results achieved in the framework of the national vaccination campaign”, explains the government in a press release.

Restaurants, cinemas and theaters, as well as public swimming pools, have again reopened in Morocco. Wearing a compulsory mask remains compulsory and police checks have been stepped up in recent weeks in various cities across the country.

All the beaches in Morocco are officially authorized to access, while respecting physical distancing.

Flights will be operated in both directions (France-Morocco and Morocco-France) since the reopening of Morocco’s borders on June 15 by French and Moroccan airlines which should be contacted for all reservations and information. It is therefore no longer necessary to go through the French consulates to travel by plane.
