The Moroccan authorities have decided to ban all travelers, regardless of their nationality, from The Republic of China from entering the territory of the Kingdom of Morocco, according to an announcement made on Saturday by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, African Cooperation, and Moroccans living abroad.

According to a statement from the ministry, this measure will be in effect starting on January 3, 2023, until further notice. The ministry noted that “the Kingdom of Morocco has closely followed in recent weeks the development of the pandemic Covid in China.”
The same source stated that “this exceptional measure in no way affects the sincere friendship between the two nations or the strategic partnership to which the Kingdom remains strongly attached.”
