Means of transport
For non-residents, the Moroccan Administration allows the temporary entrance of vehicles for three (03) months, as long as they are solely used for tourist purposes (excluding any transport of commercial products).

Export regulations for nonresidents
Art objects, collections, and antiquity: need authorization from the Department of Cultural Affairs. No exhaustive list can be drawn, but if the items and objects are in use, the numbers and values of these objects must be judged in accordance with the social condition of the interested persons as revealed by passport examination, or by examining any other evidence. When in doubt, the customs services must check whether the above-mentioned standards are met to allow the exportation of the items.
Currency and Exchange
The Moroccan dirham (DH) is divided into 100 centimes. Importing and exporting dirhams is prohibited. Foreigners who are not residing in Morocco can exchange freely imported currencies for dirhams at banks or authorized establishments to conduct manual exchange (hotels, bazaars, etc.).
When exchanging currencies for dirhams, they must keep the exchange voucher. This document can be useful to repurchase currencies from a bank of the remainder of the dirhams.
If the visitors intend to re-export all or a portion of the currencies they imported, they should sign an import declaration for means of payment at the entry.
