Morocco Reopens to Canadians: Plan Your Trip to the Sahara Now

Morocco has reopened its borders to Canadian tourists! If you can’t decide on the desert or the beach, the mountains or the city, Morocco is the place to experience it all under one passport stamp! Picture yourself strolling through souks, eating delicious tagines, spending a night in a riad, and taking a camel ride to explore the Altlas mountains. Morocco is a dream, and you can go right now! Even though the Pandemic is fizzling out (we hope!), there are a few health measures that Canadians must follow if they wish to travel to beautiful Morocco.

Restrictions for Canadian Travellers Entering Morocco

To enter Morocco, you need to fill out a digital Passenger Health Card or complete the form on arrival.

Fully vaccinated travellers must show proof of full vaccination (the last dose injected at least two weeks before arrival.) Unvaccinated travellers can present a negative COVID-19 test dated within 48 hours of arrival. Source

If you meet these requirements (effective July 7, 2021), you will be able to discover Morocco full speed ahead. Be sure to check the latest travel updates before packing your suitcase.

Top Things to Do When You Arrive

This wonderful country is so diverse and beautiful. It’s like visiting five countries in one! Here are five things you must do in Morocco (but there are plenty of others).

  • Explore the Sahara: Buckle your seatbelt for a ride in a Jeep, walk in the sand, or endure the bumps on the back of a camel (the sore butt is worth it, we promise!). Whatever way you choose to discover the Sahara desert, you can guarantee it will be a once-in-a-lifetime experience. You can even sleep under the stars on sandy dunes with the locals!
  • Discover Marrakesh: No matter what time of day, you can always find something to do in Marrakesh, known for its opulent mosques, palaces, and gardens. Some tourist favourites include Jemaa el-Fna Square, the Majorelle garden, the Bahia Palace, and the Koutoubia mosque.
  • Visit Chefchaouen: This monochrome city is famous for its blue-washed buildings and makes for pretty pictures. Plan to get lost if you don’t have a map; there are many little blue-lined streets that either lead to nowhere or to colourful shops and markets. Make a stop here before going to Tangier, on the seaside.
  • Rent a car: You won’t regret the path of most adventure. Take a 4×4 road trip in the gorges of Morocco, where you’ll travel off-the-beaten-path to secret spots.
  • Go for a hike: Impress your friends (and yourself!) when you climb the highest mountain in North Africa. The views are incredible.

Que ce soit en goûtant des plats d’ailleurs ou en sautant en parachute, je plonge tête première dans les cultures des pays visités. Il y a 3 ans, j’ai découvert le voyage backpack en Asie et ce fût le coup de foudre. Depuis, je vis pour les nouvelles expériences et surtout… les paysages à couper le souffle
