COVID-19: Morocco lifts health restrictions

Morocco has lifted the health restrictions, namely the PCR test or vaccine pass, to enter the kingdom.

The National Airports Office (ONDA) announced that PCR and vaccine pass are no longer mandatory to enter Morocco’s territory.

Passengers will only need to duly complete a health form to hand over to authorities upon arrival in Morocco, ONDA said.

The decision comes as the number of COVID-19 cases in Morocco is constantly decreasing and as the number of active cases is at its lowest level with only 118 cases.

Despite this situation, Morocco extended on Thursday the state of health emergency until October 31, 2022, to continue to ensure the effectiveness and efficiency of measures taken by public authorities to stem the spread of the Covid-19 pandemic.

The state of health emergency, in force since March 2020 and that was scheduled to expire on September 30, seeks to preserve the progress made by Morocco in fighting the pandemic and minimize the danger related to the virus variants.
