Tourists from outside the European Union, including Moroccans, can enter European countries if they have been vaccinated. However, there is a list of five vaccines for which proof of vaccination will be accepted.
Only people fully vaccinated with the coronavirus vaccine from Moderna, Pfizer-BioNTech, Astrazeneca or Johnson & Johnson for four days are allowed to cross European borders. In any case, the 27 member states are allowed to admit tourists vaccinated with a vaccine approved by the World Health Organization (WHO) and could make emergency exceptions for travelers vaccinated with another vaccine such as that of Sinopharm in China.
Despite this agreement, individual Member States still have the option of requesting a PCR test or introducing quarantine rules when the epidemiological situation so requires. Currently, the list of countries whose travelers are admitted to the European Union includes Australia, New Zealand, Rwanda, Singapore, South Korea, Thailand and Israel. This list is expected to grow even longer in the future.
The health situation in Morocco is currently stable and vaccinations taking place with vaccines approved by the WHO, the kingdom has a good chance of being added soon to the European list of safe countries. On May 20, the count of Moroccans having received their first vaccine was 7,267,431. A total of 4,748,289 Moroccans were fully vaccinated.
Spain has announced that it will again be possible for Moroccans to obtain a Schengen visa. The only condition is that the applicant has already had a Schengen visa for at least six months within the past two years.
