    COVID-19 Travel: France Moves Morocco to Amber List

    France updates its travel measures for travelers from Morocco after the kingdom’s COVID situation witnessed noted improvements in recent weeks.

    11 Oct 2021

    Rabat - France has moved Morocco to its amber list of COVID travel amid the remarkable improvements the North African country’s epidemiological situation has seen in recent weeks.

    Paris had put Morocco in the red list in August due to a worrying surge in the number of COVID-19 in cases in the country.

    But the encouraging picture painted by the country’s recent COVID figures has prompted the French government to ease its restrictions on travel from Morocco. In addition to the North African kingdom, Algeria, Tunisia, South Africa, Colombia, and Ukraine have also been moved to France’s amber list.

    The amber list means that the listed countries still face COVID-19 cases but without the spread of worrying variants.

    To travel to France, passengers from Morocco and the other amber-listed countries will need to present a vaccination pass recognized by the European Medicines Agency (EMA).

    The travelers will also need to present a certificate emphasizing the absence of any symptoms and contact with someone who tested positive for COVID-19.

    Non-vaccinated people need to present a negative PCR test taken less than 72 hours before departure or a negative antigen test less than 48 hours before departure to the transport company and border control authorities.

    Unvaccinated travelers from Morocco will also carry out a quarantine and should present a statement attesting the absence of symptoms or contact with a person who tested positive for COVID-19.

    The same measure applies to travelers who are vaccinated with a “non-recognized” vaccine by EMA.

    In recent days, Morocco has recorded on average 600 COVID-19 cases every day, marking a notable drop in the country’s infection rate amid a bold and sustainably promising vaccination campaign.
