Getting a Morocco visa as a Nigerian is a very difficult task and in this post, I will show you how Nigerians can get a Morocco visa with ease. Morocco is certainly one of the most visited countries in North Africa and Africa at large.
The first thing you need to note is that Morocco is not a free visa country for Nigerians which means, you will need a visa before you will be allowed to enter Morocco as a Nigerian. There are different reasons Nigerians go to Morocco. Common reason includes tourism, business, events and conferences. Sometimes though not always, they travel to Morocco for educational purposes.
Why It’s Difficult For Nigerians To Get A Morocco Visa
It’s difficult for Nigerians to get a Morocco visa because of the location of the country. Morocco is very close to Europe. Many Nigerians and other country citizens use the country as a Japa route to Europe via the Madeterian Sea. Because of this reason, getting a Morocco visa becomes difficult for Nigerians.
How to increase your chances of getting a Morocco visa as a Nigerian
There are three (3) things you can do to increase your chances of getting the visa. Getting any of the 3 below can still earn you a Morocco visa.
Buy a tour package
Lots of Nigerians apply for a tourist visa but they don’t show proof they are going for a tour. They don’t have any itinerary to present to the embassy to show that they are truly going on a tour. That’s why the embassy rejected their visa application.
So to increase your chances, buy a tour package from any of the trusted and registered Destination management companies (DMC). If you get a package from them, they will give you an invitation letter that can as a supporting document for your visa application. This invitation letter will be a boost and of course, the embassy may consider your application because of that.
Visa Top Countries In The World
Yes, Morocco loves applicants who have been to Europe, America and other top countries even South Africa. If you have been to the United Kingdom (UK), Canada, America, Schengen countries like France etc. The chances of getting a Morocco visa are very high if you have been to any of these top countries.
All these free visa countries or visa on arrival those no count much. They don’t consider applicants who have travelled to free visa countries or visa-on-arrival countries.
Have A Good Paying Job
If you work in Nigeria and you have a good-paying job with a pay slip as evidence, your chances are very high. If you work in government ministries, agencies, parastatals or top companies like NNPC, Dangote etc. you can apply for a Morocco visa.
Kindly note that having all the above-mentioned notes means you will get a visa. The power to give a visa is at the discretion of the Morocco embassy.
