On Friday, March 20, the Government of Morocco put into place a “Health State of Emergency,” which will remain in effect until April 20, to limit the spread of COVID-19. Movement during the day should be limited to work, shopping, medical care, purchasing medicine/medical supplies, and emergency situations only. During the 6 PM to 6 AM curfew, movement restrictions will be strictly enforced. In addition, all regularly scheduled commercial flights to and from Morocco are suspended indefinitely. As a result, and due to our reduced staffing, the Consular Section of the U.S. Consulate General in Casablanca is providing emergency services only.
If you require an emergency service, please write to ACSCasablanca@state.gov.
