The increase in cases of coronavirus contamination in Morocco means that the Kingdom remains on the list of countries prohibited from entering the European Union.
The contamination rate is now beating all records. About 1000 cases and 30 deaths per day. Given the danger posed by the instability of the country’s epidemiological situation, the European Union (EU) officially decided, on August 7, 2020, to remove Morocco from the list of countries authorized to cross its borders.
Currently, only countries like Australia, Canada, Georgia, Japan, New Zealand, Rwanda, South Korea, Thailand, Tunisia, Uruguay and China, subject to compliance with the principle of reciprocity, have received carte blanche. This is a list evaluated every two weeks and updated according to the epidemiological situation of these countries.
Independently of the EU, France requires any traveler who wishes to enter it, a negative PCR test dating back less than 72 hours when boarding the plane. You must also have an exceptional international travel certificate (work, illness, studies, etc.) with you, which has become a mandatory condition for traveling to French territory.
Moroccans wishing to travel to France must obtain the order duly signed by the Moroccan and French authorities to leave the country. It is the same for those who wish to access Morocco. Germany, meanwhile, intends to impose a two-week quarantine on anyone returning from an affected area.
