DO I NEED A PASSPORT? WHAT IS REQUIRED FOR ENTRY?

In general, to travel abroad, E.U and U.S. citizens must have a passport which should be valid for at least six months after your return date. No VISA required for most of visitors.


WHAT IS THE WEATHER LIKE?

October-December and March-May are really Morocco’s best seasons, when temperatures average in the low 70s F/24 C. January and February can be cool and rainy—bad beach weather—and only the best hotels have central heating (because of the generally moderate or warm climate). The summer shouldn’t be ruled out: Although the average summer temperature in Marrakesh and Fez can be around 100 F/38 C, the coastal cities (Casablanca, Rabat and Tangier) remain comfortable (low 80s F/27-29 C), if somewhat humid. South of the Atlas Mountains, temperatures increase greatly. Take along at least a sweater year-round for evenings in higher elevations and the desert, and take along warm and waterproof clothes December-March.


WHAT IS THE CURRENCY?

The local currency is the Dirham, and you cannot buy or sell it outside of Morocco, so you'll need to covert it on arrival. No commission is charged to change money, and you will be given a slip which is required to change any remaining dirhams back into the original currency.


ARE TIPS & SERVICE CHARGES CUSTOMARY?

INTERESTING FACTS ABOUT MOROCCO

  1. An Arabic name for Morocco, al-Magrib al-Aqsa, means “the extreme west” and attests to Morocco’s place as the westernmost country in the Arab world.
  2. Morocco is only 8 miles (13 km) from Europe, across the Strait of Gibraltar.
  3. Morocco’s national animal is the Barbary lion. DNA evidence from two lion skulls found in the Tower of London prove that English royalty owned at least two Barbary lions sometime between the 13th and 15th centuries.
  4. Moroccans jokingly call their tap water Sidi Robinet (Sir, or Lord, Tap), and it is drinkable in most parts of the country.
  5. Often called the “Red City,” Marrakech, Morocco, requires sun protection and headgear of some kind all year-round, even during winter.
  6. Morocco is the largest processor and exporter of sardines in the world.
  7. Casablanca, the film named after the Moroccan city, starring Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman, won the Academy Award for Best Motion Picture in 1942 and is considered one of the best films of all time.
  8. The Hassan II Mosque in Casablanca is the world’s seventh largest mosque and took five years of intensive labor by over 30,000 workers and craftsman to complete in 1993.



FRIDAYS ARE HOLY DAYS AND PREPARE FOR HOLIDAYS

Keep in mind that it is a Muslim country, so pay attention to their holidays otherwise you might be there when everything is closed. Also, most shops and attractions are closed on Friday since it’s their holy day. A friend of mine went during Ramadan and told me it was very difficult to eat meals. We happened to arrive in Morocco on Eid al-Adha, where they were slaughtering and sacrificing animals on the street. Shops were also closed that day, and most were closed the following day. Plus, it was a bloody mess, most of which we avoided. Below you can see what is usually a crowded marketplace is deserted.


ASK BEFORE TAKING PHOTOS (AND YOU MAY HAVE TO PAY).

When you’re walking through the markets, be careful about taking photos of people and shops. Unless you are purchasing something, they may get angry at you and even demand money for the photos. When we took photos of the snake charmers, we paid 10-20 DH. Some may even hassle you for more, so it’s good to first establish a price before taking a photo.
