Togolese citizens can now go to Morocco visa-free
Togolese citizens willing to travel to Morocco no longer need visa per reciprocity deal signed in July, foreign ministry of the West African country has announced.
In a circular issued Friday, the ministry said Togolese holding ordinary passports from September 09 can travel to the kingdom without visa and added that the reciprocity deal signed in July between the two countries for holders of ordinary passports is now effective.
“Effective free entry and free movement between Togolese and Moroccans. Long live the cooperation between Togo and Morocco,” top diplomat Robert Dussey tweeted.
Dussey and his Moroccan counterpart Nasser Bourita inked on July 21 a deal waiving visa requirements for citizens of both countries. Dussey also launched a consulate in Dakhla, in the Moroccan Sahara – a move that underlines Togo’s recognition for the North African country’s territorial integrity and national unity.
