TRAVEL INFORMATION

TRAVEL DOCUMENTS

The documentation depends on the place of origin, as some tourists are required to obtain a passport plus a visa for Morocco and in other cases only the passport.

 

You only need your passport to go to Morocco if you come from any of the following countries: Algeria, Andorra, Argentina, Australia, Austria, Bahrain, Belgium, Brazil, Bulgaria, Canada, Chile, Ivory Coast, Croatia, Cyprus (except the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus), Czech Republic, Republic of Congo, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Guinea, Hong Kong, Hungary, Iceland, Indonesia, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Kuwait, Latvia, Libya, Liechtenstein , Lithuania, Luxembourg, Mali, Malta, Mexico, Monaco, Netherlands, New Zealand, Niger, Norway, Oman, Peru, Philippines, Poland, Portugal, Qatar, Romania, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Senegal, Singapore, Slovakia, Slovenia, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Tunisia, Turkey, United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom, United States.

 

In these cases, having a valid passport will be the only one of the requirements to enter Morocco, as long as you stay for a period of up to 90 days as a tourist. The passport must have a validity of at least three months, although it is always advisable to have six months, since if you want to extend your stay it is necessary to go to the Immigration Office or Bureau des Étrangers, where you can obtain an extension of the tourist permit for another three months.

 

If you come from a country that is not in the previous list, the requirements to enter Morocco are somewhat more demanding: to the mentioned passport in force you will have to add the visa procedure.

 

These are the main steps you must take if you want to get a visa to Morocco, even if you are a tourist:

 

• Fill in some registration forms

• Provide four current passport size photographs (made in the last 6 months)

• Present a valid passport with at least one blank page

• Present photocopies of airline tickets, hotels and other services contracted during the trip

 

All this must be done at the Moroccan Consulate in your country of origin. If there is no consulate in your country, you have to go to the nearest one. And if you are a foreign resident in your current country, you can go to the Moroccan Consulate in that country. For example, if you are Colombian and you reside in Spain.

The name Marrakech originates from the Amazigh (Berber) words amur (n) kush, which means "Land of God." It is the third largest city in Morocco, after Casablanca and Fez, and lies near the foothills of the snow-capped Atlas Mountains. It is a few hours from the foot of the Sahara Desert. Its location and contrasting landscape has made it an enviable destination in Morocco.

To go shopping you have to visit the neighborhood of the souks, this labyrinth of merchandise, ordered by guilds (wrought iron, basketwork, leather, leather goods, fabrics), accessed from Djemaa square by Samarine street. The best thing to do is to let yourself be carried away by the inertia of its streets, converse with the vendors and taste and smell the delights of its stores.

Drinking in Marrakech is a discreet affair that takes place strictly behind closed doors. However, once you’re safely inside, the party starts to swing to rhythms of the gnaoua! Hidden away from view on the outskirts of the town, the clubs are a place for locals and tourists to let off steam and get down to some seriously funky beats. Be prepared for a unique brand of Marrakshi mayhem!

Marrakech was founded in 1062 as an Almoravid settlement and transformed into an imperial city of the Almohads who made it its capital, embellishing it in 1157 with the mosque of Kutubia, one of the most beautiful monuments of the Maghreb. It is located at the foot of the Atlas, with a population of more than one and a half million inhabitants and is recognized as one of the most important cities in the country and the one that attracts the greatest tourist attraction. It is divided into four distinct areas: the medina (oldest area), the Gueliz neighborhood or new city (which includes the largest commercial and financial activity), the Hivernage neighborhood (where a large part of the high-level hotel industry is located) and residential areas that extend south and west.
