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

"It would be a good idea to buy a home before moving out here as that makes life alot easier or even rent one before you move. Do the first removals in one name so that you can have another load later in the other name. Get a recommeded notaire and accountant before moving. Brush up on your french. Put your child down on the waiting list of a chosen school. Life is much easier if you live near the school and not the other side of town. Agents from the internet are very helpful," said a member in Marrakech, Morocco.
