Morocco is ending the two-month flight ban on February 7, the state news agency (MAP) announced on Thursday.
The decision followed “the evolution of the epidemiological situation in the kingdom”, the statement said, adding that entry requirements for visitors would be announced at a later date.
Meanwhile, a technical committee is examining the measures to be adopted at border crossings and the conditions required for travelers, which will be announced later, according to the statement.
The Moroccan government reiterated its appeal to citizens to adhere to all measures and directives of public authorities on this matter, calling citizens to take quickly the planned doses and completing the vaccination scheme, including the third dose, as a behavior reflecting the “national solidarity” to cope with this pandemic.
On the other hand, the country has extended the state of health emergency throughout the country until Feb. 28, in an attempt to curb the coronavirus pandemic.
The government’s spokesperson Mustapha Baitas announced the decision following the cabinet’s online meeting, adding that no decision has been taken about the reopening of the country’s borders.
