What do I need to know about living in Rabat?

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Rabat, they said:

"Before retiring in Rabat, expats should familiarize themselves with the local culture and customs. It is important to research the cost of living in Rabat, as well as the availability of healthcare and other services. Expats should also consider the language barrier, as Arabic is the official language of Morocco. Additionally, expats should be aware of the local laws and regulations, and obtain the necessary visas and permits before moving to Rabat. Finally, expats should consider the climate in Rabat, as it can be quite hot and dry during the summer months," wrote a member in Rabat.
