Immigration: 66% of Moroccans aspire to leave the country

These are the main findings of a recent survey by the Arab Barometer, a research network based at Princeton University in the United States, on migration in 2021 and 2022. 

The survey, part of the 7th edition of the Arab Barometer’s annual report, surveyed
more than 23,000 people in ten MENA (Middle East and North Africa) countries and found that 34% of Moroccans (one in three Moroccans) want to emigrate. 

When asked about their preferred destination, 22% of Moroccans said they wanted to migrate to France, 21% wanted to go to Canada, 19% opted for Germany and only 15% wanted to leave Morocco to go to the United States. 
The survey also shows that only 28% of Moroccans who want to emigrate are over 30 years old, while 47% are between 18 and 29 years old. 

Regarding the level of education, the survey notes that 40% of Moroccans wishing to emigrate have a university degree, while 32% have a high school diploma or less. 

But the worst thing is that the survey shows that 53% of the respondents even expressed their willingness to migrate without having any legal papers.
