Is it over?
Fully vaccinated people can travel at low risk to themselves. Those who are traveling domestically don’t need to get tested before or after, unless their destination requires it, and they don’t need to self-quarantine.
For international travel, the Moroccan government doesn’t require those leaving to be tested before the trip, but travelers whom are not fully vaccinated do need to produce a negative test to enter the country. They don’t need to self-quarantine post-travel.
All travelers are still required to wear face masks, maintain social distance, and avoid crowds.
In Morocco, more than 26,9% of the population has been fully vaccinated (you’re considered fully vaccinated two weeks after two doses of AstraZeneca or Sinopharm. According to a CDC study, the risk of infection has reduced 90% after the two doses of AstraZeneca and Sinopharm vaccines.

Rise up in Travel
In March, the Transportation Security Administration reported that more than one million passengers passed through security every day for 10 consecutive days.

People have already started planning and booking, with growth noticed in searches for flights and hotels. Data shared by Scott’s Cheap Flights revealed that 83% of its members planned to take two or more domestic trips in 2021 and 86% planned to travel abroad.
What precautions should you take when you travel to Morocco?

Federal law requires masks on all modes of public transport. Before you plan a holiday, check restrictions and guidelines at your destination. Some countries are still banned.
Check guidelines, testing requirements, and vaccination information before you plan your trip. Another thing to check is if the destination is already overrun with tourists (here’s looking at you, Casablanca). You should monitor the situation at your place of arrival and avoid places that are witnessing a surge…
