First of all, you will need a valid passport that has an expiration date at least six months from the date you enter Morocco. It’s a good idea to make a photocopy of your passport, carried separately, in case of any emergency. This is an important piece of Moroccan travel information. If you are from the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, and most of the European Union members, then you do not need a Visa, just up to date travel documents. For more information, please consult the Moroccan Embassy in your country, or that represents your country.
There are many options you can take getting to Morocco. If you are coming from the United States, you can take, Royal Air Maroc which offers direct flights from New York to Casablanca, with a connection in some cities like Marrakech. If you are travelling from Europe, there are many direct flights from major European cities to Casablanca, Marrakech, Ouarzazate, Fes, Agadir and more. One excellent bit of Moroccan travel information is that you can travel within Morocco, via Royal Air Maroc, for only $100 each way.
When people begin to travel, they often worry about how the country will affect their health. This could be through pollution, food, or water for example, but you can be assured that in Morocco, there is very little need to concern yourself about these issues. However, we always recommend being precautious with your safety. You should bring bottled water to drink instead of tap water when you are outside of the cities, this can be purchased at all convenience stores throughout Morocco. As well, we highly recommend plenty of sunscreen, especially if you will spend a lot of your time out on a trek. Vaccinations are generally not required or necessary when visiting in Morocco. However, we ask that you please consult your travel health professional before commencing your trip.
Staying safe on your travels is a matter of common sense and simple precautions. Thankfully, as you will find plenty of honest and friendly people throughout the country, especially in the countryside. However, as with any country, keep your valuables hidden, and hold your camera close. You should be careful in crowds and you should avoid fake guides who offer false Morocco travel information to tourists and travellers, so, guides offering their services should display an official badge from the local tourist authorities. With Best Travel Morocco, you will have all your guides arranged, all of who are licensed and trained to ensure your safety on and off of trip.
Violent crime is not a major problem in Morocco, but there have been some incidents of theft at knife point in major cities and on beaches. Sensible precautions such as avoiding badly lit streets at night should be adhered to. Most visits to Morocco are trouble-free; however, visitors are advised to be vigilant. There have been few reports of female travellers struggling with lots of unwanted attention from Moroccan men, but the best way to overcome and get out of this kind of situations is by ignoring. Just keep in mind, with Best Travel, your safety, enjoyment and comfort is our major aim.
You can use your electric appliances in Morocco, if the standard voltage in your country is in between 220V – 240V (as in the UK, Europe, Australia and most of Asia and Africa). Manufacturers take these small deviations into account. If the standard voltage in your country is in the range of 100V – 127V (as in the US, Canada and most South American countries), you need a power converter. To be sure, check the label on the appliance. If it states ‘INPUT: 100-240V, 50/60 Hz’, it can be used in all countries of the world (like chargers for tablets/laptops, photo cameras, cell phones, toothbrushes).
If the frequency in Morocco (50 Hz) differs from the one in your country, it is not advised to use your appliances, but you can try at your own risk. Be especially careful with moving, rotating and time related appliances like clocks and electric fan heaters.
