Except for citizens of one of the nations qualifying for visa exemption, all foreign nationals intending to enter Morocco must get a visa before entering the country.
Entry into Morocco
There are no COVID-19 restrictions on travel from Ireland to Morocco. There is no necessity to produce immunisation or testing certifications for COVID-19.
However, arriving passengers must continue to complete a passenger public health form (FSP) online via the link http://www.onda.ma/form.php. which must be printed and signed before to boarding the aircraft. Children under the age of 12 are excluded from this rule.
A valid passport is necessary for travel to Morocco; the Passport Card is not acceptable. A passport card is not acceptable because it is only valid for travel within the EU, EEA (Iceland, Liechtenstein, and Norway), Switzerland, and the United Kingdom. If you attempt to enter Morocco with a passport card, you may be detained at the airport until the next direct flight back to Ireland, which could take several days.
The websites of the Moroccan Ministry of Health and the Moroccan National Tourism Office should be thoroughly reviewed by would-be visitors to Morocco prior to their scheduled departure date.
The criteria to apply for a Morocco visa is straight forward. Travellers are advised to follow the criteria when applying for their visa, to ensure all documentation needed is provided. The criteria is listed below.

Visas for Morocco are often provided within 10 business days, although there are instances in which it can take up to 30 days, such as when supplementary documentation or thorough inspections are required.
The worldwide median wait period for a tourist visa (B1/B2) interview appointment is approximately two months, and candidates with urgent travel needs who satisfy specific criteria can request for an emergency appointment, which is typically available within days.
Who Can Visit Morocco Without a Visa?
A visa is not required for citizens of Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Sweden, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, or any other country in the European Union whose stay in Morocco will not exceed ninety days.

The types of visas available in Morocco differ. Depending on what the nature for your visit is, will depend on what kind of visa you will need. The competent authorities issue four types of visas for entry into Morocco:
- Visa with a short validity period
- Long validity visa.
- Transit visa.
- Visa issued at the border crossing.
What To Do If Your Morocco Visa is Refused
You have the right to contest this verdict. The embassy of the Member State that opted to deny the visa distributes a standard form to notify the applicant of the decision to deny a Schengen visa and the reasons for the decision.
Morocco demands a negative COVID-19 PCR test result.
If you intend to stay longer than 90 days in Morocco, you must register with the police and apply for a residence permit, known locally as a Certificat d’Immatriculation.
If you overstay your visa, you will be unable to leave Morocco until your immigration status is regularised. You could face a fine, a deportation order, or a prohibition on re-entry. Contact the local police station if you have overstayed your visa or are unable to depart due to border closures.
