Morocco visa for Colombians is it necessary?
We usually receive a question: “Is a visa to Morocco necessary for Colombians ?” And finally, we can answer “No, it is not necessary”, thanks to a new bilateral agreement between states. In this way, tourists from this Latin American country join the long list of travelers who do not need them either, such as Argentines, Brazilians, Chileans, Mexicans, or Peruvians, to name just a few examples. In this post, we explain what this exemption implies and what are now the requirements that are requested.
What does the Moroccan visa exemption imply for Colombians?
Undoubtedly, the main consequence of the visa exemption to Morocco for Colombians is greater agility in organizing the trip. Therefore, it will no longer be necessary to fill in registration forms or provide additional photographs and travel documentation (hotel reservations, plane tickets, etc.), something that was necessary before the signing of the bilateral agreement between Morocco and Colombia.
Now, on the other hand, to enter the country it is enough to have a passport in order and valid for at least 6 months, counting from the day of arrival in Morocco. This document must be shown when required, especially upon arrival in the North African country.
What requirements are maintained for Colombians?
Although it is no longer mandatory to obtain a visa to Morocco, Colombians must meet a series of requirements to travel to this North African country. The main one of all of them is to respect the maximum stay time as a tourist, which is 90 days.
It should be remembered that, once in Moroccan territory, this 90-day permit can be extended for another three months. This procedure must be carried out at the Immigration Office or the Aliens’ Office.

An open door to a fascinating country
Undoubtedly, this visa waiver to Morocco for Colombians will open the doors of this North African countrywide to all Colombian citizens. Now, this tourist destination will gain a lot of money, not only because of the convenience of organizing the trip but also because of its enormous appeal.
As we have been able to verify in all these years of experience, Morocco exerts an enormous power of attraction for Colombian citizens, and expectations are met upon arrival: travelers are fascinated with cities as exotic as Marrakech and Fes and with natural places as captivating as the Sahara Desert.
In addition, during our tours through Morocco, any Colombian will be able to notice subtle similarities with their country of origin. For example, the fact of having two very different coastlines (in this case, the Mediterranean and the Atlantic) and a mountainous system made up of several mountain ranges (in this case, the High Atlas, the Middle Atlas, and the Anti-Atlas), in addition to sharing the same passion in matters such as crafts or gastronomy.
