Dozens of Moroccans wishing to return to their country of residence visited a Royal Air Maroc agency in Casablanca on Friday after the government’s announcement.
Moroccan citizens and foreign residents in the Kingdom, as well as their families, will be able to travel to their country of residence from July 14, 2020 at midnight by air and sea. However, passengers will be required to present, before boarding, a PCR test of less than 48 hours, as well as a serological test.
In this regard, several Moroccans residing abroad, who have been stranded in Morocco since last March because of border closures, have expressed their anger over the PCR test requirement. “I came to this agency to get more information about this test. We have had information that it would cost 3,000 or 4,000 Dirhams. I can’t afford to do it. My husband is in Italy and my two children and I are stuck in Morocco,” a young mother insisted.
