PCR test of less than 72 hours and self-isolation for 7 days for those who have vaccinated Sinoform
The French Embassy in Morocco has published new travel conditions for travel from Morocco to France on its Facebook page. As of June 9, 2021, the flow of passengers between France and abroad will be reopened according to modalities that vary depending on the health status of third countries and vaccination of travelers. In practice, the flow of passengers to France will be able to resume from June 15, the date of the resumption of flights between Morocco and France. According to the classification of countries based on health indicators on June 2, 2021, Morocco is classified in an “orange” zone, that is, the circulation of the virus is active but in controlled proportions, without the spread of the variant worrisome.
Entry and exit conditions from Morocco to French territory
People in the Orange Zone can travel to France if they are vaccinated but under certain conditions. For those receiving the AstraZeneca vaccine, a compelling reason is not needed. However, they will have to give a PCR test of less than 72 hours or an antigen test of less than 48 hours. For those receiving the sinoform vaccine, a compelling reason is essential. In addition, a PCR test or antigen test of less than 72 hours is required upon boarding. In addition, there is possible testing and 7-day self-isolation on arrival. People unaffiliated from the orange list can only go to France for essential reasons. A PCR (72 h) or antigen (48 h) test is required, testing on arrival is possible and self-isolation for 7 days. The vaccines approved by France are those recognized by the European Medicines Agency (EMA): Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca and Johnson & Johnson.
Some categories do not need to demonstrate a compelling reason to enter France from Morocco. The same is true for the French (as well as their spouses and children); Foreign nationals (European citizens and third country citizens) residing in France (with a valid residence permit). This is the case for citizens of European territory, as well as their spouses and children, who reach their main residence in a country in the European territory through France. With regard to air connectivity, the Moroccan authorities have announced the resumption of flights from June 15, 2021, according to the classification of countries in two lists (A and B), which are subject to change. France is currently classified in List A. Thus, travelers to France must present a negative PCR test upon boarding not less than 48 hours prior to the date of entry into Moroccan territory.
On the other hand, travelers from List B countries must apply to the Moroccan authorities for extraordinary authorization, to have a negative PCR test less than 48 hours before the date of entry into Moroccan territory and once there within 10 days. Must undergo medical isolation. Finally, it should be noted that the maritime relations between France and Morocco have been re-established as part of the operation “Marhaba 2021”. A PCR test is mandatory to begin with. The second PCR test will be conducted at the Ghats.
