Morocco has banned arrivals from China for an indefinite period.

All travellers who have been to China within the previous seven days will be turned away from Morocco, regardless of their nationality.

However, travellers who left China at least seven days prior will be allowed in.

The update to Morocco’s entry rules has been confirmed by the UK Foreign Office.

It comes as the European Union has advised member states to request pre-departure COVID tests for Chinese arrivals, but this isn’t mandatory.

While some EU countries, including France, Spain and Italy, now require arrivals from China to provide a negative COVID test, most have not imposed any restrictions.

China confirmed today that it will reopen its border with Hong Kong on 8 January, the same date it plans to lift its mandatory quarantine requirement for arrivals from the rest of the world.

From Sunday, travellers to China will need to provide a negative PCR test. The UK requires the same for arrivals from China.
