PASSPORT and VISA
For U.S. and U.K. passport holders, a visa is not required for stays of 90 days or fewer for Morocco. Please make sure your passport is current and valid for at least 6 months beyond your trip departure date (March 22, 2025). Your passport should have at least 2 blank pages for the entry and exit stamps, or more if you are visiting several countries on this trip. Please note that the last two amendment pages are not acceptable for visas and immigration stamps. When entering the country, make sure your passport is stamped. Some travelers have experienced difficulties leaving the country because their passport has no entry stamp.
Please upload a scanned copy of the first page (photo page) of your passport to this secure Dropbox Folder.
If your passport expires before then, you will need to renew your passport. We recommend using A1 Passport & Visa Services. To do so, please email them at firstname.lastname@example.org and let them know you are working with Elevate Destinations on your travel arrangements.
