When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Morocco, they said...

"1. It is important to research the culture and customs of Morocco before moving there. 2. It is also important to learn some basic phrases in the local language, Arabic, as it is the official language of Morocco. 3. Expats should also be aware of the climate in Morocco, as it can be quite hot and dry in the summer months. 4. Expats should also be aware of the cost of living in Morocco, as it can be quite expensive in some areas. 5. Expats should also be aware of the visa requirements for entering Morocco, as they may need to apply for a visa before entering the country. 6. Expats should also be aware of the healthcare system in Morocco, as it may be different from what they are used to in their home country. 7. Expats should also be aware of the safety and security situation in Morocco, as it can be quite volatile in some areas. 8. Expats should also be aware of the local laws and regulations in Morocco, as they may be different from what they are used to in their home country," remarked another expat who made the move to Morocco.

"Morocco is quite expensive if you are moving the united state of america , you home should be pay off before the move and quiet nice a plan to support you familly for at least 2 years before you can start generating money in morocco , be careful of the scammers and they are in full force in the country and best wishes and good luck," explained one expat living in Mohammedia , Morocco.
