Morocco eases entry restrictions

by Charlotte Flach

International travellers can now enter Morocco by either presenting a vaccine certificate or a negative PCR test if they are not vaccinated. Children under the age of 12 are exempt.

The tourism board has highlighted a new campaign, Kingdom of Light, which launched in April across 20 key markets globally, including the UK. 

The new campaign assets include three main components: a new visual identity; a new brand film and eight different creative executions for OOH. The new campaign highlights the three key pillars for tourism in Morocco: the unspoilt natural environment; culture and discovery; beaches, sports and leisure.

Morocco is now connected to the UK by six airlines - Air Arabia, British Airways, EasyJet, Royal Air Maroc, Ryanair and TUI Fly - departing from seven airports across the UK and Ireland, and arriving at five destinations in Morocco.

Adel El Fakir, CEO at MNTO, said: “We are delighted to reconnect with travel industry partners in the UK as Morocco prepares for a rapid revival in 2022. The tourism industry is critical to our economy, which before the pandemic, represented 7% of GDP.

“With the restart, since early February, of international tourism in Morocco and the ease of entry conditions from May 17, we are looking forward to welcoming visitors once again to explore everything our spectacular country has to offer. The UK is the second largest international market for Moroccan tourism and we’re grateful for the continued support from tour operators and airlines as we grow the sector post-pandemic.”
