The duration of sty and the type of work being performed determines the type of visa needed to travel to and work in Morocco.
All foreign nationals must apply for and secure a visa before traveling to Morocco on business. For short business trips up to 3 months in duration, a foreign national must apply for and secure a Business Visa before entering Morocco. For longer-term employment, an employee and employer must apply for and secure a work authorization, which is further divided into two categories—secondment and local hire.
Employers and employees need to make sure they apply for the correct visa or work authorization and provide the necessary documentation in their application to work in Morocco. There are a variety of different types of residency visas, work visas, and employment authorizations in Morocco, but we’ve listed the most common ones below.
Processes and requirements vary by type of visa and Morocco often significantly changes immigration procedures, sometimes without any notice of change. It’s also important to note that spouses and partners are not typically recognized as dependent.
