Casablanca Airport

Procedures and practical informations

Time and deadlines
The attention of travelers is drawn to the fact that their presence is required at the airport two hours before the scheduled departure time. Identity checks to access the terminal and the different areas inside the terminal must be taken into account in your travel planning. Most companies close their check-in counters 45 minutes before departure time. Once you have checked in, it is also advisable to go immediately to the boarding gates, as police formalities may take a long time if several take-offs are scheduled at short intervals.
Arriving passengers must count an average of 20 to 30 minutes to complete the formalities of police and customs and to retrieve their luggage.
Time and deadlines

Entering the country and visas
Your pet must be accompanied by a health certificate drawn up within three days before embarking by a veterinarian of the country of origin, provenance or possibly transit. The certificate shall indicate, in particular, the number, identification number and, if appropriate, the animal's report. The document must also certify that in the said locality no cases of contagious disease affecting the animals of the species exist at the time of departure and during the preceding six weeks. Upon arrival in Morocco, your animal will be subject to a veterinary health check by a veterinarian. The admission of your animal to Moroccan territory will be authorized by the customs authorities after production of the veterinary inspection certificate issued by the said veterinarian. Whatever the results of the veterinary sanitary control carried out, you will have to pay a health inspection fee. The tariff of import inspection fees for pet animals is fixed at DHS 10 per animal. This tax is levied by the customs authorities.

GOOD TO KNOW: Some animals are subject to regulations for the protection of endangered species. This is the Washington Convention better known as the "CITES Convention". Travelers bringing with them the species covered by the agreement must submit a CITES import permit to the Customs. This permit, valid for 6 months, is issued by the Moroccan Directorate of Water and Forests and Soil Conservation on presentation of a "CITES" export permit issued by the country of origin. When you leave Morocco, you must present the re-export permit to Customs.

Airlines are particularly demanding on the allowed weight of luggage. To avoid problems at check-in counters, it is expressly required for travelers to check before their arrival at the airport if their baggage do not exceed the permitted allowance. In this case, expensive and non-negotiable luggage fees may be asked. In addition, it is recalled that the luggage must be strong enough to be handled and transported. Plastic bags are prohibited because they tear easily.
