Health Alert: Health State of Emergency Extended until June 10

The Government of Morocco has announced that the country’s “Health State of Emergency” has been extended and will remain in effect until June 10 as part of its emergency measures to limit the spread of COVID-19.  During this period, movement during the day should be limited to work, grocery shopping, medical care, purchasing medicine/medical supplies, and emergency situations only. Train and intercity bus service has been suspended and a curfew between 7:00 PM and 5:00 AM remains in place during Ramadan.  Between these hours movement restrictions will be strictly enforced. 

The Consular Section of the U.S. Consulate General in Casablanca is providing emergency American Citizen services only.  All visa operations remain suspended.  If you require an emergency service, please write to   

All regularly scheduled commercial flights to and from Morocco have also been suspended indefinitely.  At this time no additional repatriation flights for U.S. citizens are currently scheduled but the U.S. Consulate General continues to monitor developments closely.

As a reminder, if you need to refill your medical prescription or obtain additional medicine or medical supplies, be advised that pharmacies in the country remain open during the day.  Pharmacies will generally accept prescriptions issued by your doctor in the United States.  The pharmacy may not carry your precise U.S. medicine, but they might offer an equivalent or similar medication.    

On March 17, 2020, the Ministry of Interior announced that foreigners who recently entered Morocco and were unable to depart the country within 90 days due to the closure of borders and airspace will be permitted to exit without a fine (when the borders and airspace reopen), even if they are not in possession of an extension to reside in the county beyond 90 days.  Similarly, the Government of Morocco will continue to honor the residency cards of foreigners that expire during this period.  At this time, the government is not processing requests for obtaining, renewing, or extending residency cards until further notice.
