Morocco will lift its ban on international flights from February 7.

A government statement published by the MAP news agency stated:

“This decision comes in accordance with the legal provisions relating to the management of the state of health emergency and following the recommendations of the scientific and technical commission and taking into consideration the evolution of the epidemiological situation in the kingdom.”

The country banned all flights into the country in late November due to the concern regarding the spread of the Omicron variant of Covid-19. This followed the suspension of flights from the UK, Germany and the Netherlands in October.

The statement added that:

“A technical committee is currently examining the measures to be adopted at border crossings” and that entry requirements will be announced at a later date.

As it stands, the UK’s Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) currently states that “when flights resume” visitors will need to provide proof of full vaccination along with a negative PCR test result taken no more than 48 hours before boarding a flight or ferry to Morocco.

Those travelling by ferry will also need to take a Covid-19 test during the journey. Note that children under the age of six are exempt from the PCR requirement.

According to the FCDO, travellers will also need to present a Public Health Passenger form, and may have to undergo additional procedures such as temperature checks or a free-of-charge rapid antigen test.
