I travel on a UK passport. I'd like to stay in Morocco beyond the allowed 90 days. I met with the police here in Morocco and the requirements, while not onerous, are cumbersome in terms of forms to complete, get stamped etc. They also say I need a medical certificate. I checked with a campersite who said they could stamp all the forms and handle the extension without the need for a medical. Their fee was 1,000 dh. The fees are not an issue but I don't want the extension denied because a form wasn't included or not completed exactly as required.

I've also been told you can just exit and re-enter to get another 90 days from your new entry date. (Vehicle is allowed in Morocco for 180 days, so no issues with vehicle). My plan is to fly from Agadir to the Canary Islands for a week and return to Morocco, starting a new 90 days upon arrival again in Morocco.

My question is, will this work? Its certainly easier than gathering all the forms, completing them in quadruplicate, in blue ink, having them stamped etc. (Not exagerating)

Any advice?

I think Tam Northernraider has met someone who has either already done this or is about to.

If you leave your mhome in Morocco and fly to the canaries there is potentially a chance you may not get back in. Why not just use your ferry return and then book another in Spain to get back, at least you won't have the worry of leaving your Mhome behind anywhere.

Recommends leaving for a few days

I may be wrong but understand that to leave without your vehicle is not possible unless you lodge it with customs at Agadir or Marrakesh.

I'm happy to be proven wrong.

Plenty of campsites will sort it for you for various prices , 1000 dh sound a lot.

Yes your vehicle is imported for 6 months , if you leave and return you'll get another 90 days , I've now met 3 couples here in Morocco who have done this over the last 2 weeks

I know that's the situation in Turkiye but for Morocco its OK to fly out leaving your vehicle. Just wasnt sure about getting another 90 days ...

I thought they put an entry into your passport so they could check you still had the vehicle with you when you left the country.

The stamp is mostly in Arabic but there's no little vehicle icon like there is in European countries showing entry/exit by car and I know a Cdn cpl who parked up and took a quick weekend trip to the Canary Islands to meet friends with no issues. They weren't looking to extend their stay though. I have the customs sticker for my vehicle but that's a separate document.

I'll let you know how it goes

The problem with that is your departure EU day and arrival Morocco count as a day in each country although they are only one day each country counts it in its 90 days. The only way arround it I can think of are the 2 or 3 day ferries to Italy and France but they are expensive.

Two or three days won't matter as long as it doesn't count EU

I have some personal experience of this. On two separate occasions, I have flown back to the UK in the middle of my 90 day visa, leaving the van in Morocco.
On both occasions, I had no problems getting back. All I had to do was to complete a form at the airport prior to departure, telling the authorities where the van was parked. Hope that this helps.

I have done this a couple of times in the past. Flew back to the UK and returned, leaving the van in Morocco. No problem, it reset my 90 days.
