What is the Morocco tourist visa?
The Moroccan tourist visa is an electronic visa for citizens of certain countries who intend to visit Morocco but want to avoid the long queues at the Morocco embassy or consulate. Instead, they must submit a completed visa application form online and receive their approved visa in an email.
Remember that if you intend to travel to Morocco for purposes outside what the tourist visa allows, you may need a Morocco student visa or a business visa with different requirements. You may need to apply for those visa types at the Morocco embassy.
How long is the Morocco visa valid?
The Morocco tourist visa allows visitors a Single Entry into Morocco for a maximum stay of 30 days Per Entry. Please note that the visa expires after 180 days after issued, so you need to use it before.
Extending your Morocco visa
It is possible to apply for a visa extension if you need to stay longer than thirty days. This can be done at the nearest Moroccan police station if you are in Morocco already; however, this may not guarantee an extension or multiple entries.
If you know you must stay longer than thirty days before traveling to Morocco; you may need to apply via the nearest Morocco embassy or consulate. You may also need a different type of visa depending on the purpose of your travel.
