Foreign Travel Advice
Morocco’s government council has today decided to extend the state of emergency until October 31st, 2022. The measure allows security services to either relax or tighten preventive measures depending on the ever-evolving epidemiological situation. The Morocco’s government has decided to lift the night curfew, starting Wednesday, November 10th 2021, however, citizens will have to use the vaccination pass or a certificate of exemption from vaccines to access public spaces, including commercial establishments, cafes, restaurants, gyms, and hammams. Despite lifting the night curfew and related controls, the government emphasized that it will continue monitoring COVID figures across the country to adapt its measures in accordance with the overall national epidemiological situation. The categorization of prefectures/provinces can change at short notice, and if a large number of new COVID-19 cases is detected in a city/prefecture/province, local restrictions may be applied immediately.
