Travel Health Information
vaccinations for travelling here
Although Morocco is a destination that remains extremely popular with tourists, the threat of terrorist attacks or other violent incidents here is high. If you’re thinking of a holiday or trip to Morocco, consider travelling through an organised tour company, or ensure that you are completely up to date and aware of the current security situation for your specific destination at the time of travel. Petty crime is common, particularly in tourist areas, and more violent crime although less prevalent, is not unusual. Stay with your group, and take particular care if you are visiting an area outside the main holiday resorts and tourist destinations. Avoid carrying visible valuables or large amounts of money.
Consult a travel clinic for the necessary vaccines before travelling.
There are reasonable healthcare facilities in Morocco suitable for use by tourists and other visitors to the country. Make sure you have adequate travel insurance in place to cover the cost of your treatment. If you’re not on a package holiday or you don’t have a local tour guide, call 150 and ask for an ambulance in the event of a medical emergency.
Morocco is in an earthquake zone, and minor quakes and tremors are frequent. If you’re staying in a hotel, take note of any safety or evacuation procedures. If you’re planning to explore, whether on your own or in a group, take a first aid kit with you, along with plenty of fresh drinking water and a reliable means of summoning help. It can be extremely hot in Morocco, and you will need to stay hydrated. It is always safest to trek or explore in rural or unfamiliar areas with a local guide.
