Entry formalities in Morocco

Moroccan regulations concerning entry into Morocco stipulate that any foreigner wishing to visit Morocco must have a valid passport or any other document (minimum 3 months) recognised by the Moroccan State as a travel document. Although no visa is required for European Union nationals, a valid passport is compulsory. There is no longer a visa to fill in on arrival and departure at the airport. Climate and temperatures throughout the year We would like to draw your attention to the fact that there is easily a 15°C difference between the daytime and evening temperatures. It is therefore recommended that you pack something to cover up in winter and in the evening. You can consult our weather page to find out more about the temperature statistics throughout the year.

Purchase and exchange of Dirhams

In principle, the Dirham (bank note) is not convertible into foreign currency, which means that it should not be possible to buy it outside Morocco. In practice, it is possible but not interesting because outside Morocco, the exchange rate is unfavourable and the exchange costs are high. You can buy your dirhams at bank counters or in one of the many independent exchange offices. The exchange rate is the same everywhere (but avoid the exchange offices at the airport) and there are no fixed charges, whether you change 10 or 100 Euros at once. You should keep the exchange slips with you as you can only convert 30% of the dirhams you buy back into currency. You can also get dirhams from ATMs in bank branches with your Maestro and Visa card for 200dh per day per card.

Negotiating, Buying, Tips

Negotiating your purchases of Moroccan souvenirs and handicrafts will take time and you will need to do a quick market survey by consulting different sellers before setting your maximum price. For services where prices are not displayed, it will be more complicated. For an unmetered taxi, a horse-drawn carriage, a massage, a scrub, a guide, a trip to the exchange office, for any service, you should ask the price BEFORE committing yourself. You should never regret a purchase that you paid "too much" because it was the price you were ready to give at that moment according to your means, your mood or the urgency. As in Europe, you will tip when you feel that the service provided was worth it. When you are invited into a shop, it is common for the shopkeeper to invite you to share a mint tea
