  • Foreign citizens from countries where visas are required must have their travel documents accompanied by visas granted by the Moroccan authorities.
  • For visa-exempt foreigners, the stay in Morocco for tourism purposes is limited to three months, and for those who are not, it is limited to the period of the visa’s validity.
  • If a foreigner desires to extend his/her stay in Moroccan territory beyond the validity length of the visa or the three months, he/she must “seek authorization from the competent Moroccan government (General Directorate of National Security) to avoid being in an irregular position.
