All About the Morocco Visa
*Please note, Byevisa will offer the eVisa in the future for those nationalities that are eligible.
Heading on a North African adventure to Morocco and wondering whether you’ll require a visa? Whether or not you need travel authorisation for your trip depends on your nationality.
Citizens of certain African countries (Guinea, Mali and the Republic of the Congo) are eligible for an eVisa for Morocco. This is also known as an ETA (Electronic Travel Authorisation), and you can apply for it with us really easily by filling in our simple online form.
To obtain it, you’ll need the details of your trip, a passport with 6 months’ validity, and a passport and photo scan. The pass is a Single Entry travel document, it is valid for 90 days from the date of issue and there is no government fee to obtain it.
On the other hand, Americans, Australians, Brits, Canadians, Indians and citizens of New Zealand are exempt from Morocco visit visa requirements. That means if you’re a national of one of these countries, you can travel to Morocco without having to obtain authorisation beforehand. This also applies to those visiting from EU nations.
These citizens just need to get their passport stamped by officials on entering the country and show that they have booked onward travel.
Being clued up on travel authorisation requirements before embarking on a trip to another country is essential. You don’t want anything to stand in the way of your trip of a lifetime to visit Marrakech’s Bahia Palace and so many other wonderful attractions.
Below we’ll give you all the key information that you need to get your travel documentation sorted. Read on and learn everything you need to know about making your application to visit the magical land of Morocco!
Morocco Visa Application Process
Only citizens of the following 3 African countries are eligible to obtain a Morocco eVisa:
- Republic of the Congo
In the English-speaking world, this online travel pass is more commonly referred to as an ETA.
It is officially known by the Moroccan government as the AEVM, which stands for ‘Autorisation Électronique de Voyage au Maroc’ in French, which translates as ‘Electronic Authorisation to Travel to Morocco’.
It is hoped that the government will add more countries to the list of nations eligible for the electronic pass in due course.
If you are from one of the countries mentioned above, you can apply for the electronic authorisation in just a few minutes by applying with Byevisa
Here is a guide to the general process to follow:
- Grab your passport and the details of your trip.
- Carefully complete all the required fields of the application form (more about this below).
- Upload the required support documents (a scan of your passport and a passport photo).
- Pay the associated fee, which varies depending on how quickly you require your ETA.
- Wait for your paperwork to be processed.
- Receive your ETA in your inbox during the specified time frame.
- Print your travel visa for Morocco and take it with you when you go!
The approved travel document that you receive in your inbox will display information such as the AEVM authorisation number, the expiration date, the number of entries allowed (in this case, 1) and how long the pass is valid for (in this case, 90 days).
Morocco Visa Requirements and Eligibility
To be eligible for the ETA or AEVM, as it is referred to in some places, you must be in possession of a passport that is valid for at least 180 days from when you apply.
You must also submit the following documents:
- A scanned copy of a passport photo (3.5 x 4.5 cm in size and in colour).
- A scanned copy of your passport data page (the file size should not exceed 2MB).
Requirements for those who can enter Morocco visa-free:
Sat there wondering ‘do I need a visa for Morocco’? Many citizens, including Americans, Australians, Brits, Canadians, Indians and New Zealand nationals, don’t need a visa to enter Morocco for tourism purposes for up to 3 months. This also applies to citizens of EU countries.
You should, however, ensure that your passport is stamped on entering the country. You may run into difficulties when exiting Morocco if your passport doesn’t have an entry stamp.
The following nations do not require travel authorisation to enter Morocco. If you are a citizen of one of the following nations, you will just need to show your valid passport and get the stamp on arrival. You may also be asked to show evidence that you have a return flight booked within the next 90 days.
Here is a full list of the Morocco Visa-Free Countries:
France + Monaco
Hong-Kong (*a stay limited to 30 days)
Hungary (*a stay limited to 30 days)
Macao (Administrative area)
Spain + Andorra
United Arab Emirates
United States of America
Passport validity requirements for visa-exempt nations:
- Your passport must, of course, be valid for the duration of your stay. The Moroccan Consulate General in London highly recommends that your passport should be valid for 3 months minimum from your proposed entry date to Morocco to avoid any difficulties. 6 months’ validity at least is the safest option for stress-free travel that gives you the option to extend your trip if you desire.
- You should have at least 1 blank page for the entry stamp.
- Check that your passport isn’t damaged. You may be refused entry if you are carrying a damaged passport.
If you’re both ineligible for the ETA and you’re not exempt, you require an embassy visa. With this type of paperwork, if you fall in love with the home of the ‘Blue Pearl’ city Chefchaouen and want to extend your stay, you can request an extension at the local police station.
