The interministerial committee for the management of international travel has updated the list of countries A and B as well as the health arrangements for international travel. These new measures will come into force on Thursday, November 18, 2021. Following the deterioration of the epidemiological situation in several countries and regions of the world, the interministerial committee for the management of international travel has updated the health system relating to international travel, with a view to reduce the risks of an epidemic resumption on the national territory, announces the Department of Health. Here is the new health protocol Travelers from both lists must complete a passenger health form, to be downloaded online before boarding (also distributed on board the aircraft or ship).

This card contains in particular the address of the passenger and two telephone numbers allowing him to be located, if necessary, during the 10 days following his arrival in the national territory. Thermal cameras, electronic thermometers, antigenic tests: Morocco is tightening up border controls In addition, the interministerial committee for the management of international travel also provides for a double temperature control, systematic on arrival and a random control by rapid antigenic test at the arrival. Travelers are also required to respect the precautionary measures in force in Morocco, namely wearing a mask, respecting physical distancing and hand hygiene. For travelers arriving from list A, they must present a certificate attesting that they are fully vaccinated against Covid-19. As for those coming from list B, they are required to present a certificate attesting that they are fully vaccinated and a negative PCR test dating back less than 48 hours (time between sampling and loading). If the rapid antigenic test is positive on arrival, Moroccans and foreigners residing in Morocco who test positive will be taken care of by a health structure, with 10-day confinement according to the health protocol in force. Any other passenger who tests positive on arrival will not be allowed to enter the national territory. It should be noted that children under the age of 6 are exempt from the screening PCR.
