  • Tobacco: 200 grams of manufactured tobacco for your personal consumption
  • Alcoholic beverages: a one-liter bottle of wine and a one-liter bottle of spirits (or another alcohol of the same size)
  • Perfumes and eau de toilette: a bottle of perfume (150 ml) and a bottle of eau de toilette (250 ml)

Some goods can not be imported into Morocco. These include: weapons, weapons and war ammunition; narcotics and psychotropic products; recorded writings, printed matter, cassettes and videocassettes and any object contrary to morality and public order; certain plants and plant products likely to be carriers of harmful organisms or dangerous for the national flora.

Currency

The currency is Moroccan dirham (MAD). You can bring with you Euro or US Dollars, and exchange once arrived. 

Electricity

The voltage in Morocco is 220 V, and outlets will fit the ‘two-pin plug known as the Europlug.
Watch out for American and Canadian appliances, which are made to be used with 110V. That means that even with an adapter, plugging them into a 220V socket may damage them. If your appliance is “dual-voltage”, it should be fine (it’s designed for both 110 and 220V). If not, you’ll need a power converter as well as an adapter.


Morocco telecommunications

Morocco is one of the most mature telecommunications markets in Africa, with multiple international and local providers.  Morocco is developing its telecoms systems and investing extensively in hardware and networking infrastructure.  Market growth will be driven primarily by large, government-led projects including new e-government initiatives (e.g. the government’s digitalization initiative (“Maroc Numerique 2020”), smart cities projects, renewable energy projects, and transportation upgrades and expansions), as well as investments in telecommunications and banking and financing.
