Morocco’s government has announced that the ban on international flights would be lifted on February 7th.
The decision was made in response to “the evolution of the epidemiological situation in the kingdom,” according to a statement, which also added that visitor entry requirements would be announced at a later date.
As news of the Omicron variant of Covid-19 circulated around the world in late November, all flights into the nation were temporarily halted.
Flights from the United Kingdom were halted in October.
According to an official statement: “This decision comes in accordance with the legal provisions relating to the management of the state of health emergency and following the recommendations of the scientific and technical commission and taking into consideration the evolution of the epidemiological situation in the kingdom.”
A system for Moroccan citizens to return home had been in existence, but it was discontinued in December.
“When flights resume, you will need to provide proof that you have been fully vaccinated against Covid-19, with the second dose administered at least two weeks prior to travel, and a negative PCR test result before boarding your flight or ferry to Morocco,” the UK Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) said.
The result must show that the PCR test was completed less than 48 hours before boarding.
“For travel by ferry, you will also need to take a Covid-19 test during the journey. Children under the age of six years old are exempt from the PCR testing requirement for entry into Morocco.”
