Morocco arrival procedures

Greetings to-be Morocco travelers,
As a response to the March attacks in Belgium, security procedures have been increased at Morocco's ports of entry. Specifically at Casablanca's Mohamed V Airport and Marrakech-Menara Airport, this is most visible in that only bona-fide travelers are allowed entry into the airport terminals. Should you have booked an arrival airport transfer, your driver will more than likely not be allowed entry into the actual building. Make your way out of the building and your driver should be waiting for you among the throng of other drivers and general public. At Mohamed V Airport, this entails making your way to the exit for Terminal 1 (signposted as "Sortie T1"), as the exit for Terminal 2 has been permanently closed.

Happy travels,
Darren Humphrys

Darren,
I am arriving by ferry in late October from Tarifa to Tangier. Have there been any changes in ferry arrival? Are there any changes for staying in Morocco for 3 days?

Thanks, Julie

Sallam 'lekum Julie,
I haven't been to Tangier Ville port for quite some time so I'm not sure whether there's any change in arrival procedures upon disembarking from your Tarifa fast ferry. Perhaps contact one of the riads within Tangier medina, to receive some on-the-spot current information.
Happy travels,
Darren
