Marrakech

Marrakech guarantees relaxation and a change of scenery.

Formalities for travelling

To visit Morocco, a valid passport is necessary. The national identity card is not enough. Some foreign nationals must present a visa, but this is not the case for citizens of the European Union for whom the passport is enough. The customs officer will stamp the date of entry into the country, which is the starting date for a three-month tourist visa. You will also have to fill out an information form (sometimes directly in the plane) and give it to the customs officer.
