Travel to Morocco from Chile
Are you going to travel to Morocco from Chile? This is how more and more tourists do since these are two countries that have traditionally had good relations and that share some geographical characteristics, such as their thousands of kilometers of coastline and their contrast between high mountains, desert, and sea. In this article you will find useful information before leaving, both to organize your flight and to prepare your documentation.
Documentation to Travel to Morocco from Chile
Thanks to the good relations between the two states, it is not necessary to apply for a visa to enter this North African country. It is enough to carry your passport with you, at least if you stay for less than 90 days. At the Immigration office or Bureau des Étrangers, you can request an extension of your permit for another three months, as long as your passport is valid enough for the new date of return.
We remind you that Morocco has its own embassy in Chile, specifically at Avenida Juan XXIII 6152 Vitacura, Santiago. Even if you do not need a visa to enter the country, there you can carry out other administrative procedures related to arrival, as well as receive general information about the trip and stay in Maghrebian lands.
Flights from Chile to Morocco
To travel to Morocco from Chile there are no direct flights. At least one scale must be carried out. The two great gateways to the country are Marrakech and Casablanca. In the first case, there are numerous combinations, with companies such as Iberia for tickets from a single company or with combined tickets from LATAM + Royal Air Maroc, Air Europa Ryanair or Norwegian, among others. In this way, the total duration of the trip is, at least, 17 and a half hours. The other Casablanca option offers similar combinations, but with the possibility of finding shorter trips, under more than 16 hours.
Other aspects to take into account for the trip
When traveling to Morocco from Chile, you should take into account other aspects. For example, the currency. In this North African country, the Moroccan dirham is used, which at the beginning of June 2019 was exchanged as follows: 1 Chilean peso equals 0.014 dirhams, or 1 Moroccan dirham equals 72.09 Chilean pesos.
Another important change is the schedule: Chile is located at GTM -4 (Easter Island GTM -6), while Morocco is at GTM. That is to say, at 9:00 in the morning in the North African country it is 5:00 in the morning in Chile. Therefore, some sleep imbalances may arise due to jet lag, although the time difference is not as marked as in relation to Europe. The difficulty in the first few days will be falling asleep at nightfall, but it will be regulated properly if you decide to get up early on the first day.
