    The Moroccan government announced the resumption of flights from and to Morocco starting Tuesday, June 15.

    Morocco's Ministry of Foreign Affairs announced the news, emphasizing that the flights will be carried out under exceptional permission given that Morocco’s airspace is still closed.

    The announcement takes into account the positive indicators of the epidemiological situation in Morocco and the decrease in the number of COVID-19 cases, the ministry said.

    The measure aims to facilitate the return of Moroccans residing abroad to their homeland, the ministry said.

    “This operation will take place in accordance with an approach that combines gradual opening - taking into account the evolution of the national and international epidemiological situation - and preservation of the gains made by our country to curb the spread of the coronavirus.”

    The ministry said that the countries with which Morocco will resume flights are classified into two lists, in line with the recommendations of the Ministry of Health and on the basis of official epidemiological data by the World Health Organization (WHO).

    List A includes all countries with positive indicators with regard to the control of the epidemiological situation, in particular the spread of variants of the virus.

    Travelers from these countries, whether they are Moroccan nationals or foreigners established in Morocco, or citizens of these countries or foreigners residing there, can enter Morocco if they have a vaccination certificate or a negative PCR test taken 48 hours before departure.

    List B is intended to be a restrictive list of all the countries not concerned by the relaxation of measures contained in list A, and “which are experiencing a spread of variants or the absence of precise statistics on the epidemiological situation.”

    The ministry said that the two lists will be published on a regular basis on electronic websites belonging to Morocco’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, as well as by the Ministries of Health and Tourism.

    Regarding the Marhaba operation, which welcomes Moroccans residing abroad every summer, the ministry said that the process will take place from the same maritime transit points from last year in accordance with the health conditions.

    In addition to the PCR test presented during boarding, passengers will also undergo another test onboard to ensure maximum health security.

    List B includes: Afghanistan, Algeria, Angola, Argentina, Bahrain, Bangladesh, Benin, Bolivia, Botswana, Brazil, Cambodia, Cameroon, Cape Verde, Chile, Colombia, Congo, Congo (DRC), Cuba, United Arab Emirates, Eswatini, Guatemala, Haiti, Honduras, India, Indonesia, Iran, Iraq, Jamaica, Kazakhstan, Kenya, Kuwait, Lesotho, Latvia, Liberia, Lithuania, Madagascar, Malaysia, Malawi, Maldives, Mali, Mauritius, Mexico, Namibia, Nepal, Nicaragua, Niger, Oman, Uganda, Pakistan, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Qatar, Central African Republic, People's Democratic Republic of Korea (North), Seychelles, Sierra Leone, Somalia, Sudan, South Africa, Sri Lanka, South Sudan, Syria, Tanzania, Chad, Thailand, Togo, Ukraine, Uruguay, Venezuela, Vietnam, Yemen, Zambia and Zimbabwe.

    Meanwhile, list A consists of all other countries not mentioned in list B.
