No vaccinations such as yellow fever or COVID-19 are required for travel to Morocco. You are however advised to avoid drinking untreated tap water. Safe-to-drink water is easily accessible in hotels and riads in Morocco.

Morocco is a relatively conservative country, therefore it is advised that all participants dress modestly, particularly in religious sites such as mosques. Ask for permission before taking photos of people.

The local currency is the Moroccan Dirham (MAD). Exchange currency at authorized outlets and be aware that credit cards are not universally accepted, especially in rural areas.

Autumn begins around October in Morocco. Temperatures drop below 200C during the day. In desert cities like Marrakech, daytime temperatures can become as high as 29°C at times, but there are cooler days, as well. And evenings cool off to the point where you will be much happier if you have a sweater or light jacket to slip on after dark therefore it is advised that you pack accordingly.
