The Kingdom of Morocco launched a new e-visa for travelers on July 10, 2022, with the goal of making it much easier and more convenient for all to visit the country in the months of come.
Here’s everything you need to know to obtain the e-visa:
What is a Morocco E-Visa?
It is an electronic travel permit that allows you to travel to the country for tourism and business purposes. Unlike before, you are no longer required to apply for the visa in person (though you may still do so at the embassy or consulate) and the visa will no longer be attached to your physical passport. It’s 100& electronic so you’ll only need to present the approved e-visa on any digital device or print it yourself at home.
Who can apply for an e-visa?
Over 100 nationalities can apply for the Morocco e-visa. Most of these travelers must be a resident or visa-holder of:
- Any Schengen country
- New Zealand
- United Kingdom
- United States
See here for the complete list of countries eligible to acquire an e-visa.
Are Filipinos exempt from getting an e-visa?
Yes! Filipino tourists can visit Morocco visa-free for up to 30 days.
What are the application requirements?
You will need to have the following when you’re applying for the e-visa:
- Passport (must be valid for at least 6 months from the intended travel date)
- Residency card or visa (if applicable)
- Photograph of applicant
- Email address (must be an active account)
- Debit or credit card (must be authorized for online payments)
Are there any additional entry requirements for Morocco?
Currently, all passengers over the age of 12 must have the following:
- COVID-19 vaccination certificate
- Completed Public Health Passenger Form
Minors under 12 years of age and those who are not fully vaccinated must also present a negative PCR test when accomplishing the public health passenger form. Note that this form requires payment which will depend on how fast you want it processed. It is recommended that you accomplish it at least 24 hours before your flight.
Accepted vaccines are AstraZeneca, Sinopharm, Sputnik, Pfizer/BioNTech, Janssen, Covishield, Moderna, and Sinovac. You are considered vaccinated if all doses of a vaccine against COVID-19 have been administered for at least two weeks before traveling. If you received your last dose more than 4 months ago, a booster shot is required.
Health insurance is not mandatory but highly recommended.
