Entry Health Provisions to Moroccan Territory


The global health situation imposes several provisions and restrictions during international travel. Respecting these provisions is a gesture involving personal and collective responsibility. This allows you to protect yourself against the outbreak of a contagious disease and to reduce your responsibility in the risk of its spread.

In order to allow you to prepare your stay in Morocco, here are the general health provisions to follow, as well as those relating to SARS-CoV-2, known as Covid-19.

General sanitary provisions


Apart from COVID-19 measures, no vaccine is compulsory to travel to Morocco.

It is still strongly recommended to have an up-to-date vaccination schedule concerning:

– Diphtheria-Tetanus-Poliomyelitis

– Pertussis and measles

– Hepatitis A

– Typhoid (if the stay must take place in precarious hygienic conditions; for children: from the age of 2).

– Rabies, as a preventive measure (for prolonged stays in a situation of isolation; for children: as soon as they are old enough to walk). Vaccination against rabies does not exempt a medical examination in the event of a bite.

General sanitary provisions


An International Certificate of Vaccination attesting to the administration of one dose of polio vaccine within a period of 12 months to 4 weeks prior to departure is required from all travelers arriving from polio-affected countries.

General sanitary provisions


There is no malaria in Morocco. It is still advisable to avoid marshes and water ponds.

General sanitary provisions

Intestinal infections

It is also necessary to pay attention to intestinal or digestive infections related to water. Diarrhea is very common during the first days of stay. It is therefore necessary to check the source of the water you will drink or use for cooking (when camping for example).

General sanitary provisions


If your pet is accompanying you, bring its anti-rabies certificate, it should be less than 6 months old, and its pedigree. It is also imperative to prevent any contact with other animals, domestic or wild, especially in rural areas.

The health protocol relating to SARS-Cov-2 (COVID-19)

The state of health emergency has been in force in Morocco since March 20th, 2020 and has since been extended every month. This results in a health protocol concerning access to the land, and preventive measures applied throughout the country.

Before any trip abroad to and from Morocco, it is necessary to check in advance with the airline and public agencies (local authorities, embassies, consulates, etc.) whether specific measures apply. In the event of cancellation, modification or postponement of a flight, please contact your airline or travel agency directly.

Air Travel connections

On arrival at Moroccan airports, for any traveler aged 18 and over, you must present 3 health documents:

  • The COVID-19 vaccine passport
  • The negative result of a PCR test less than 48 hours old
  • The passenger’s health form, to be downloaded online before boarding (also distributed on board), duly completed, in particular the passenger’s address and two telephone numbers allowing him to be located, if necessary, during the 10 days following his/her arrival in Morocco. https://www.onda.ma/form.php

Passengers between the ages of 6 and 18 are exempt from the vaccination pass, and those under 6 from the pass and the PCR test.

Screening tests on arrival are no longer systematic for all passengers. The rapid antigen test is carried out randomly:

– If the rapid antigenic test is negative: RAS.

– If the rapid antigen test is positive on arrival: If the person is asymptomatic or has mild symptoms: treatment in self-isolation at home, or at the hotel if the passenger is a tourist, according to the national protocol in force; If the person has moderate symptoms: treatment will be carried out in a public or private hospital according to the national protocol in force.

Land & Sea Travel Connections

For travelers preferring the sea routes, it is sufficient to present a vaccination pass OR a PCR test of less than 72 hours. In Morocco, standardization of the protocol is expected.

In the South, the passage with Mauritania (Guerguerat), is reopened, in both directions, upon presentation of the negative result of a PCR test of less than 48 hours. In the North, the land crossing points of Ceuta and Melilla remain closed. No crossing is possible in either direction.

Applicable Sanitary measures in Morocco

The state of health emergency has been extended until April 30, 2022 inclusive.

Since October 21, 2021, the presentation of a vaccination pass has been required to travel between prefectures and provinces, and to access public and private administrations, hotels, restaurants, cafes, shops, sports halls and hammams in the Kingdom.

In addition, wearing a mask is compulsory throughout the Kingdom. Everyone is required to comply with the mandatory measures provided for in the context of the state of emergency under pain of penalties provided for in the penal code. We call on you to respect the instructions of the Moroccan authorities.

Instructions for international visitors

Foreigners facing any type of difficulty are invited to contact their country-of-origin consulate closest to their place of residence.

It is recommended to contact their insurance or assistance company in order to check the validity in Morocco, and if necessary, the extent of the medical coverage taken out, particularly in terms of hospitalization and deportation.

It is recommended to follow the recommendations of local authorities, and to consult the websites of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Ministry of Health of Morocco as other measures could be implemented.
