If your country is not on the list of nationalities exempted from visa, you have to contact the Morocco embassy or consulate nearest to your area for more information about obtaining a visa, which is more likely to be a tourist visa. You will need to produce a duly filled and signed application form, your original passport as well as a copy of the first page and a copy of your legal status in your country of origin and two passport size color pictures of you.

You may also need other documents such as a copy of your detailed provisional flight itinerary, an employment certificate from your actual or previous employer. If you are a student, you will need a confirmation letter from the college or university you will be attending. If you are moving to Morocco to set up a business, you will need to produce a copy of your last income tax.

You are advised to subscribe to a travel insurance during your trip to Morocco.
