Visa policy of Morocco

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A foreign national wishing to enter Morocco must obtain a visa unless they are a citizen of one of the countries eligible for visa exemption.

On July 10, 2022, the Moroccan government launched an e-Visa system[1] to facilitate the granting of visas to foreign nationals subject to this formality.
