Health Alert: Urgent – Confirm Your Interest In A Final​potential Special Evacuation Flight ​for U.s. Citizens

The U.S. Mission to Morocco ​continues to explore all options for U.S. citizens ​and Lawful Permanent Residents remaining in Morocco who wish to return to the United States, including a potential special ​ evacuation flight from Casablanca to London mid-to-late this week.  If the flight is finalized, U.S. citizens will be required to pay up front the cost of the one-way flight to London, and would also need to arrange their own travel onward to the United States from London (which may ​require overnighting in London, ​depending on the timing of onward flights to the United States).  The one-way flight to London will cost an estimated $575.00.

PLEASE CONFRIM BY MONDAY 9:00 AM:  If you are a U.S. citizen or Lawful Permanent Resident in Morocco who would like to return to the United States on this special evacuation flight to London, should the flight be ​finalized, we ask that you reply to this email by Monday 9:00 AM.  Please confirm that you would ​purchase tickets for this special evacuation flight.  Indicate the number of U.S. citizens ​or Lawful Permanent Residents in your traveling party, and please also provide your location in the country.

If the flight takes place, it will be available ONLY to U.S. citizens and Lawful Permanent Residents of the United States.  No others – including F1 student visa holders, B1/B2 visa holders, nor any other non-U.S. citizens or Lawful Permanent residents – will be permitted to board this special evacuation flight.

Note that this will likely be the final special evacuation flight for U.S. citizens.  As part of its efforts to limit the spread of COVID-19, the Moroccan government has suspended indefinitely all ​regular commercial flights in and out of Morocco.  This suspension will last until at least until the end of April 30, but it will likely continue well past that date.  At this time, the U.S. Mission to Morocco does not know when normal commercial flights will resume.  

To repeat, if you are a U.S. citizen or U.S. Lawful Permanent Resident and you would like to return to the United States via this final potential special evacuation flight from Casablanca to London next week, please email no later than 9:00 AM Monday.  Please only email once and we ask that you do not call at this time.  Your reply does not guarantee you a seat on the flight; however, if the flight is finalized, we will then provide you further information on Monday about the exact date and time of the flight, as well as instructions for booking and paying for your seat.
