Useful for travelers to Morocco

Before traveling to Morocco, there are several things you should prepare to ensure a smooth and enjoyable trip. Here’s a checklist of important items to consider:

the beauty of Morocco

Passport and Visa:

Ensure that your passport is valid for at least six months beyond your planned date of departure from Morocco. Check whether you need a visa to enter Morocco based on your nationality. Apply for a visa if necessary.

Travel Insurance:

Consider purchasing travel insurance to cover any unexpected medical emergencies, trip cancellations, or lost luggage during your stay in Morocco.

Health Precautions:

Check with your doctor about any recommended vaccinations or medications for traveling to Morocco. It’s also advisable to bring along a small medical kit with basic supplies like pain relievers, antidiarrheal medication, and any prescription medications you may need especially during a Trip To the Desert.

Currency and Banking:

Familiarize yourself with the Moroccan currency, the dirham (MAD), and exchange some money before your trip. ATMs are widely available in major cities like Casablanca, Rabat, Fes, and Marrakech…nearly all the cities and the main villages. Inform your bank of your travel plans to avoid any issues with using your debit or credit cards abroad.

Language and Culture:

Learn some basic Arabic or French phrases, as these are widely spoken in Morocco, especially in urban areas. Familiarize yourself with Moroccan customs and etiquette, such as greeting people with “Salaam Alaikum” and respecting local traditions and dress codes, particularly in more conservative areas.


Research and book your accommodation in advance, especially if you’re traveling during peak tourist seasons. Consider staying in Riads (traditional Moroccan guesthouses) for an authentic experience. You can opt for luxurious hotels, hostels, or vacation rentals depending on your preferences and budget.


Plan your transportation within Morocco, whether you’re flying into one of the major airports (Casablanca, Marrakech, or Fez) or arriving by land via ferry from Spain. Decide whether you’ll be renting a car, using public transportation, or hiring private drivers or taxis to get around during your stay.

Electrical Adapters:

Morocco uses European-style electrical outlets with a voltage of 220V. Bring along a universal adapter and converter if your electronic devices are not compatible.

Safety Precautions:

While Morocco is generally a safe destination for travelers, it’s essential to take common-sense safety precautions. Be cautious of pickpockets in crowded areas, and avoid displaying expensive belongings. Be mindful of your surroundings, especially at night.

Itinerary and Activities:

Plan your itinerary and research the attractions and activities you’d like to experience in Morocco. There are many to help you explore the Medinas of Marrakech and Fez. Trekking in the Atlas Mountains, or camel riding in the Sahara Desert would be fun. Keep in mind that flexibility is key, as unexpected adventures often arise while traveling.

By taking care of these preparations before your trip to Morocco, you’ll be well-equipped to make the most of your time in this vibrant and culturally rich destination.
