Note that Moroccans are increasingly opting for stays abroad with a predilection for “multi-destination” to explore, in one trip, several countries and cities.
Moreover, the majority of these tour operators prefer to target destinations that do not require a visa for the Moroccan passport such as Turkey, Malaysia, South Korea and Brazil or other countries where the procedures to obtain this sesame are fluid and easy for Moroccans like Egypt, Singapore, Thailand, United Arab Emirates, India and Japan.
Turkey, with Istanbul in particular, a city renowned for its rich history and culture, remains one of the most popular destinations for Moroccans.
Travel expenses increased by 679 million dirhams to nearly 5.9 billion dirhams for the first four months of the current year. In 2018, they reached 18.86 billion dirhams, an increase of 8.8% compared to 2017.
