All other clients should consult the Moroccan Embassy or Consulate in their countries or you may refer to the following website which is for the General Moroccan Consulate in New York: www.moroccanconsulate.com/visa.cfm.
3- Moroccan Local Currency:
The local Moroccan currency called the “DIRHAM”. The rates vary little between banks, but some banks charge a fee for currency exchanges which can add up to a considerable sum with the smaller denominations Major credit cards are accepted in the larger hotels and all big shops. ATM cards can be used in many cities even in the south. Travelers’ checks are not widely accepted in Morocco and they can be difficult to cash or exchange. But only for a very limited amount. Use a money belt for all your valuable papers, checks, passport and credit cards.
4- Would it be wise to bring some Medicines?
The food in general and municipal water supplies in Morocco are perfectly safe, one never knows how your body’s “system” will react to new and unusual foods or different water supplies. Therefore, it is always wise to keep with you some sort of medicines such as Pepto-Bismol, Imodium AD, etc. at all times.
5- What should I wear?
Covered is better. Moroccans appreciate respect shown for their culture. The Moroccans are covered and they look quite attractive. Loose, draped clothing enhances the human figure which too often needs all the enhancing it can get. Just compare a family of plumpish, pink, skimpily dressed tourists as they trundle about in the hot sun getting pinker and pinker to a Moroccan family dressed in flowing garments. Men should avoid going bare-chested and neither sex should wear very short shorts. Walking shorts are fine for both sexes (knee length). Rather than sleeveless blouses or dresses, women should wear short sleeves. Skirts or jeans are equally accepted. Good walking shoes are necessary.

15- Is it OK to travel to Morocco during Ramadan?
Every country in the Islamic world observes the fast of Ramadan, held between dawn and dusk for one month of the Islamic year.
The short answer to this is yes, it’s absolutely fine to travel during Ramadan. The timing of Ramadan is in relation to the moon, so the date changes year on year moving slowly backwards each year. The month of Ramadan is the biggest event on the Moroccan calendar, during which Muslims people fast during the daytime and feast at night. However Ramadan hardly affects visitors. Some restaurants are closed for lunch and things generally slow down.
No restrictions apply to non–Muslims but it is respectful to refrain from eating, drinking or smoking in public during the fast. The country tends to be less busy with visitors and some hotels reduce their rates so it can be an excellent time to travel.
At the end of the month is the holiday of Eid al-Fitr, when practically everything closes for around two to three days.
