Accordions & Toggles
At time of writing, British, American, Canadian, Australian, and Irish nationals do not require a visa to travel to Morocco, just a valid passport. Be advised that if your date of exit from Morocco is less than six months before the expiry of your passport you may be refused entry into the country. Similar rules apply to most EC countries, but please check with the relevant Consulate well in advance of your holiday as it is your responsibility to ensure that you have the correct documentation to enter the country. On arrival in Morocco, you will have to submit a white visitor’s card which you will have been given to fill in on the plane and this will entitle you to stay in Morocco for up to 90 days. The queue at immigration may look dauntingly long if you arrive at a peak time, but don’t worry, it moves pretty fast.
Travel insurance should be obtained before leaving your country of origin. We don't force anyone to purchase it. Local hospitals have limited diagnostic capability. Private clinics can be expensive, evacuation can cost a lot, luggage can disappear, so insurance is a good idea.
Our guides speak many languages as well as Berber and Arabic, including French, English, Some of them speaks Spanish too, and often some German, Japanese and Italian as well. And About drivers they speak's Frensh and English too
ou can relax and wear whatever is familiar and comfortable on the street at home. Morocco is very tolerant and welcoming to visitors, you're not expected to act or look like a Moroccan. Longer shorts and shirts are fine for men. For women it's a good idea to bring a scarf to cover bare shoulders and arms in rural villages.
The official language of Morocco is Arabic, although French is widely spoken, particularly in large cities. Some English is spoken at hotels, restaurants and shops but it is useful to have a sprinkling of French to improve your enjoyment of your trip. In mountain areas various dialects of Berber are spoken, and in more remote villages not even Arabic is spoken, let alone French or English! If you learn just a few of the Arabic phrases we have given you below, you will be greeted with delight by the local Moroccans.
