Types and method of obtaining visas * *

The different types of visa : four types of visa are issued by the Moroccan diplomatic representations.
1. The classical visa: allows a foreigner to enter the territory of Morocco for reasons other than immigration, for an uninterrupted short stay or several short stays in the case of multiple entries. The duration of each stay is between 1 and 90 days.
2. The long validity visa: it allows foreigners to stay in Morocco for repeated periods of up to 90 days* during 12 months. It is issued by the Moroccan diplomatic or donsular representations, after prior consultation with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation.
* A foreigner with a valid visa and who wishes to remain in Morocco for more than three months in a continuous manner must ask the Direction Générale de la Sûreté Nationale for the issuance a residence permit.
3. The transit visa: it authorizes a foreigner who travels to a third State to cross the territory of Morocco. This visa may be issued for one or two transits, but the length of stay of each transit may not exceed 72 hours. It is particularly suitable for travelers who do not benefit of the visa exemption and who use a Royal Air Maroc flight with a long connection in Casablanca Airport. It allows to leave the airport the time of the connection.
NB: Travelers connecting two flights in M5 Casablanca Airport and not leaving the international zone of the airport do not need a transit visa.
4. The visa on arrival: exceptionally, Security Services may issue short-stay and transit visas upon arrival at Mohammed V Airport in Casablanca. For countries where Morocco is not represented, requests must be addressed to the diplomatic mission accredited in that country or to the Honorary Consuls. In the absence of such representations, applications will be addressed directly to the Moroccan Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation, "Direction des affaires consulaires et sociales" in Rabat .

Standard procedure in embassies: the different types of visa are generally obtained in the Moroccan diplomatic representation closest to you.
