Passport and Visa Information
Currently British, American, Canadian, Australian, and Irish nationals do not require a visa to travel to Morocco, just a valid passport. Please note that if your date of exit from Morocco is less than six months before the expiry of your passport, you may be refused entry into the country. Similar rules apply to most EC countries, but please check with the relevant consulate well in advance of your holiday.
The currency of Morocco is the Dirham, a currency not available outside Morocco. In major cities, there are plenty of foreign exchange facilities and cash points accepting Mastercard, Visa, Maestro and Cirrus. Most tourist restaurants accept payment by credit card.
Health and Vaccinations
There are no compulsory vaccinations required for Morocco when travelling from the UK, although we recommend inoculations against tetanus, hepatitis A, polio, and typhoid. Vaccinations can be obtained from your local doctor or medical centre.
The official language of Morocco is Arabic, although French is widely spoken, particularly in large cities. Some English is spoken at hotels, restaurants and shops, but it is useful to have a sprinkling of French to improve your enjoyment of your trip. In rural areas, various dialects of Berber are common.
The Marrakech Urban Adventure team are knowledgeable & passionate about their home town - the "Red City". From the bustling souks of the medina, to the palaces and monuments, the tajines, mint tea and cous cous to all of those 'out of the way' places that few tourists get to see.
