Air Site visitors in Morocco Anticipated to Restart in Mid-June

From June 15, 2021, Morocco will again receive flights from abroad. The Moroccan government wants to resume its air traffic first with special flights and then with regular connections.

Holidays in Morocco will be possible again from mid-June for travelers with a vaccination certificate and / or a negative PCR test who must not be older than 48 hours at the time of entry. All countries of the European Union (except Lithuania), Great Britain, the USA, Canada, Russia, China and all UN member countries that are not on the B-list of the Moroccan Ministry of Health will benefit from the new measure.

Travelers from these countries must obtain a waiver prior to travel, present a negative PCR test that is no older than 48 hours at the time of entry, and then undergo 10 days of quarantine. The country lists A and B are regularly published on the electronic pages of the ministries for foreign affairs, health and tourism. Both lists are updated regularly if necessary, at least twice a month.

The Moroccan National Tourist Office (MNTO) stresses that the indicators of the epidemiological situation in Morocco are very positive, especially after the expansion of vaccination campaigns in the country. More than 9 million people have received at least one dose of vaccine to date and Morocco currently only has 2500 active cases.

Authorities state that they have taken all measures to ensure guests are safe and not have to worry about their health. Among other things, there is a “Welcome Safely Label”, which is based on hygiene standards of the WHO and the UNWTO and was introduced by the Ministry of Tourism.

The latest data shows that Morocco welcomed 430,000 tourists in March 2021, a 78% decrease from the same period last year. In the first quarter of this year, tourist arrivals fell by 69.1%, representing a loss of 11.9 billion dirhams. The revitalization of air travel is therefore essential for the recovery of local tourism.
