Travel to Morocco from USA

The American people are undoubtedly some of the most traveled in the world. And although it is not among its main source markets (France is, followed by Spain, the United Kingdom, and Germany), travel to Morocco from the USA is a possibility within everyone’s hands. In light of this, it cannot be ruled out that it will rise in the upcoming years, as is already the case with visitors from Asia, particularly China. In this article, we tell you some things that you should know if you live in the USA, speak Spanish and plan to travel here. And we remind you that our agency can organize a tailor-made tour upon arrival in the country, with a private driver and other accompanying professionals.

Travel to Morocco from USA by plane

Given the great distance that separates both countries, travel to Morocco from USA has to be done by plane. And there are some direct routes, operated by Royal Air Maroc, all arriving at Casablanca Mohammed V International Airport. The cities from which these direct air routes depart are Boston (6 hours and 25 minutes of flight), Miami (7 hours and 55 minutes), New York (6 hours and 45 minutes), and Washington (7 hours and 5 minutes). On the other hand, if a stopover is added, the options multiply, although the duration of the route also increases. Some of the airports where stopovers are usually made are Madrid, Paris, or London, which allows you to reach cities other than Casablanca, such as Marrakech or Agadir.

Do you need a visa to travel to Morocco from the USA?

If you have an American nationality, you will not need to get a visa to travel to Morocco from USA. It will be enough to do it with your passport, at least if you plan to stay in this North African country for a period of less than 90 days as a tourist. Said passport must be valid for at least 6 months from the moment of entry. If you plan to extend your stay beyond 90 days, request more information at the Moroccan consulate in New York or Washington.

Currency exchange and price comparison

If you are going to travel to Morocco from USA, another aspect of interest is the currency, the exchange, and the price comparison. And the good news in this regard is that the cost of living here is much lower. As of today, the change is around the following:

  •  1 US dollar equals 9.66 Moroccan dirhams
  •  1 Moroccan dirham equals 0.10 US dollars

Regarding the prices that you will find in Morocco, we give you some reference figures and approximate:

  •  1 menu in an average restaurant, with three courses: 8 dollars
  •  1 pair of pants (Levi’s brand or similar): $30
  •  1 liter of gasoline: $1.10

To exchange currency on Moroccan soil, you can do so at exchange offices located in large cities and at the main transport infrastructures (airports, ports, and border posts). Also in the country’s banks, as we indicate on this page, especially the Banque Marocaine du Commerce Extérieur (BMCE).
