HOW TO GET A VISA TO MOROCCO: TIPS AND ADVICE

The nationality of the traveller determines whether or not a visa is required. Moroccan visa requirements do not apply to citizens of several countries, so they can travel to Morocco without obtaining one. Click here to view the list of countries whose citizens are exempt from a Moroccan entry visa:https://www.consulat.ma/en/list-countries-whose-citizens-are-exempted-entry-visa-morocco

For countries where Morocco is not represented, requests must be made to the diplomatic mission accredited in that country or to the Honorary Consuls. In the absence of these representations, requests will be addressed directly to the Moroccan Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, Directorate of Consular and Social Affairs - Rabat (visa@maec.gov.ma) for a visa to be issued at the airport. By clicking the link below, find out what type of visa you may need and which documents you will need. https://www.consulat.ma/en/visitingexploring-morocco

Additionally, you can find information on this page https://visaguide.world/africa/morocco-visa/ . Lidija, our Head of Member Relations, Events & Programme Manager, will be able to supply you with accompanying (supporting) documentation when you apply for the visa prior to commencing your application.
Accompanying (supporting) documents that will support your bis application will be:

  • Flight Itinerary
  • Hotel Confirmation
  • Invitation letters by:
    • Local Patient organisation – AMAL
    • Local logistic agency
    • CML Advocates Network – LePAF that will detailing that all costs including travel, hotel food will be covered by LePAF

On average, Morocco visas are processed in two weeks (10 business days), but it may take longer in some cases. The processing time may be longer if you are missing any documents or if it is a busy time of year. For this reason, you should contact Lidija before applying.

City of Marrakesh

Known as the Red City, Marrakech is Morocco's second largest city. It has about 800,000 residents and most of the houses are colored red. Known as the pearl of Morocco, Marrakech Medina is a colorful city of entertainment. The city is a major economic center with several upcoming industries and markets. It's located at the foot of the Atlas Mountains and has a stunning landscape. This city is mainly divided into two parts: the medina, which is the old fortified city, and the modern city nearby (called Gueliz). A shimmering white snowy winter and a warm, humid summer make up the city's wonderclimate. There is a strong sense of sociability and warmth among the inhabitants of this city that is renowned all over the world.

The name comes from the Berber words 'mur(n) akush', which means 'land of gods'. Marrakech was the name given to Morocco by Arabs, Persians, and Europeans until a few decades ago. From Spain to Senegal, it was the capital of a vast empire founded in the 11th century. Almohads continued to develop it in the 12th century. 9km of red earth wall still exists from the time of the Almoravids. By the 16th century, the Saadian Empire was ruling over it. Many of their buildings and tombs have been preserved well. The Sultan of Alaouits- Moulay Ismail later conquered it. Under French rule, it was governed by Pasha El Glaoui in 1917. In 1956, King Mohammed V took over, but the fortunes were confiscated after his death.

In the later years, Rabat became the capital and Marrakech became a provincial capital. With an area of 31,160 kms, it is now the capital of Marrakech Tensift el Haouz region.

Conference Venue:

Kenzi Rose Garden: Avenue du Président Kennedy , Hivernage, Hivernage, 40000 Marrakech, Morocco

Marrakesh City Tour on Sunday

Enjoy a half day guided city tour of Marrakech. Stop first at the Koutoubia Mosque, which is an old monument built under the reign of the Almohad Caliph Yaqub al-Mansur (1184 to 1199). This monument inspired other buildings such as the Giralda in Seville in Spain and the Hassan Tower in Rabat. Stop next at the Bahia Palace. This Palace was built in the late 19th century and was intended to capture the essence of the Islamic and Moroccan style. Continue the tour with the world famous Jema El Fna Square where you will enjoy amazing performances of traditional activities by storytellers, snake charmers, peddlers of traditional medicines. Your last stop is the bustling souks in the old medina.

For those interested, we will be offering an optional 3.5-hour tour on Sunday afternoon. This will not be an official part of the program, and those who would like to join this tour will need to register at the registration website or at the hospitality desk at the hotel.
