Learn More: ETA
Among other things, Morocco is a top travel destination because of its stunning landscapes, rich culture, and great weather. And there is an extra perk for visitors from Guinea, Congo, and Mali, as they can enter the country with just an electronic travel authorization rather than a visa.
The Morocco eTA is a digital travel document linked to the applicant's passport and designed specifically for travelers from these countries. If you are eligible for the eTA, you do not need to apply for a visa. Find out more below.
What is the Morocco eTA?
This electronic travel document allows a person to enter Morocco. While it's not a visa, it is mandatory for certain nationalities to obtain the Morocco eTA to enter the country and explore its beautiful sights and culture. Now, you can apply for the eTA through iVisa.
Who is eligible to apply for the Morocco eTA?
Electronic travel authorization for Morocco is only available for passport holders from Mali, Guinea, and Congo. These countries have a special agreement with the Moroccan government.
The electronic authorization can be obtained entirely online by these nationals. The ETA can be applied for from anywhere in the world. Once their application has been processed and accepted, applicants must print it and show it at entry and departure points in Morocco.
If you're from another country than the ones mentioned above, please use our handy Visa Checker Tool to find out if you need a Morocco Tourist Visa to visit the country, and apply instantly online!
If you need a long-term visa for Morocco to study, work, and live in the country, contact your nearest Moroccan embassy or consulate for more info.
How long is the Morocco eTA valid?
Eligible people can visit, and stay up to ninety days in Morocco. That's plenty of time to see the most famous places and experience the rich culture! It's a single-entry document, meaning you'll have to reapply if you leave the country and want to come back..
Please note that the right of entry to Morocco with an eTA is still up to immigration officials.

Like many countries, Morocco has a few regulations to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Make sure to prepare before you go, and read the entry requirements below.

In order to travel to Morocco, travelers must present a completed health form, which can be downloaded online before boarding. While this document is also distributed at the airport or the port, it is highly advised to fill out the form online before boarding your plane to Morocco.
