What is the Morocco Tourist Visa?

The Moroccan foreign affairs department launched the Morocco tourist visa as an electronic visa for citizens of certain countries planning to travel to Morocco for tourism. The online visa application enables travelers to obtain their Morocco travel visa without visiting a Moroccan embassy or the local Morocco consulate.

How long is the Morocco visa valid for?

The single-entry Morocco tourist visa allows visitors to stay for a maximum of 30 days Per Entry from the date of arrival in Morocco. Please note you must use the visa within 180 days after issued.

Extending your Morocco visa

If you need to stay longer than thirty days, you can apply for a visa extension at the nearest Moroccan police station. However, this may not guarantee an extension or multiple entries.

Do Egyptian Nationals Need a Morocco Visa?

Countries like Australia, New Zealand, the United States, the United Kingdom, the European Union, and Canada have been granted visa exemption to enter Morocco. However, Egyptian passport holders still need a visa to visit Morocco and will need to apply for the Morocco tourist visa online.

Morocco visa requirements for minors

The above visa requirements apply to everyone, including minors. The parents or legal guardians must submit the Morocco visa application on behalf of the minor, as they cannot apply for themselves. Each traveler needs their own visa.
