Passports and Visas
In order to enter Morocco, you must own a valid passport with at least six months remaining. All British citizens, no matter how young, must have their own passport. A Visa is a stamp in your passport, or a separate piece of paper, officially stamped, indicating how long you are permitted to stay in the country for a permitted length of time. Most visitors to Morocco do not need them and are allowed to remain for up to 90 days on entry. The exceptions are nationals of Israel, South Africa and Zimbabwe.

Morocco is a relatively safe country and vaccinations are not legally required for entry and most visitors, especially those intending to make a short, stay do not need to obtain specific immunization.

Along the Mediterranean, Morocco has a subtropical climate, tempered by oceanic influences that give the coastal cities moderate temperatures. Toward the interior, winters are colder and summers warmer. At high altitudes temperatures of less than -17.8* C (0* F) are not uncommon and mountain peaks are covered with snow during most of the year. Marrakech is beautiful all year round but temperatures in the summer months, and particularly August, can be very high. If you are visiting Morocco in the winter, do carry warm clothes as although the climate in Marrakesh is normally very mild it can also get very cold and Moroccan architecture is better suited to protect from the heat than the cold.
