Moroccans Stranded Abroad: The Repatriation of the Last Group from Japan

On Tuesday evening, the remaining group of Moroccans stranded in Japan departed from Narita International Airport after having spent three months in various Japanese cities.

The returnees include executives who went to Japan for short training sessions under the supervision of the Japan International Cooperation Agency and other specialized agencies, as well as several citizens who visited Japan before the suspension of air links and the closure of borders last March.

The Moroccan embassy in Japan has taken care of this group of Moroccans in terms of accommodation and necessary health care in addition to transportation to the airport.

The first group of Moroccan citizens with diseases had previously left Japan.

It should be recalled that these operations, which follow the speech of the Minister of Foreign Affairs, African Cooperation and Moroccans Residing Abroad, Nasser Bourita, before the House of Councillors announcing the start of the repatriation operation, are in line with the overall strategy put in place in Morocco in accordance with the High Guidelines of King Mohammed VI.

About 30 flights have been planned between 21 and 27 June for the repatriation of 4,644 Moroccans stranded in 17 countries, as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.
