Morocco: FAQs

Plan with peace of mind

Our frequently asked questions about travel to Morocco. If you have any other questions, please contact your travel designer or concierge.

Do I need a visa?

US, Canadian, UK and EU citizens do not require a visa to visit the Kingdom of Morocco for a stay of up to 90 days. Hong Kong and Singaporean citizens can stay up to 30 days visa free.

A useful website for checking whether you require a visa is however we strongly advise you consult the details with the relevant embassy or consulate which will be able to give you the exact detail, and that you do this at least two months prior to your trip.

Will I need travel insurance?

All travellers should check to be certain they are covered by their own medical insurance including a travel policy. We highly recommend that you take out trip cancellation insurance and medical evacuation. This will cover you if you must cancel for medical or family emergency reasons, and provides additional coverage should you need medical attention while on the trip.

Clients have previously booked through Allianz, CSA Travel Insurance or Travel Guard, however we do not recommend a specific insurance broker and we do not sell travel insurance.

Remember to first check with your credit card provider who often offer travel insurance as part of their package.

What currency should I bring?

The Moroccan currency is the Moroccan dirham. Visa and Mastercard are widely accepted. It is easy to change USD in Morocco and it is good to have some local currency for use in small artisan shops.

What should I wear?

Morocco is a Muslim country,and we encourage you to be mindful of the local religion and dress code. We advise both men and women to dress in a conservative way – cover up shoulders and ankles. Although you are not obliged to follow their local dress code, doing so will be seen as a mark of respect and you will be warmly welcomed.

How should I greet people?

It is custom to shake hands with pretty much everyone you meet, but if you are male, only shake a woman’s hand if she offers you her hand first. Moroccans are friendly and love speaking to foreigners, especially so in the bustling souks and markets.

Electrical plugs

Morocco’s electrical plugs operate at 220 volts, 50 Hz (the US uses
120 volts) with a two-pin round plug adapter. You can purchase two pin round adapter plugs in the airport.

When will I receive my travel pack and itinerary?

You’ll be sent your travel pack about 1-2 months before you travel with information about the destinations you are visiting. Your confirmed itinerary summary will be sent to you by email before your trip.
