Morocco Health & Safety Advice

Flag of Morocco


Since water sources outside main cities may be contaminated, it is advised to always drink bottled or sterilized water. Milk is not pasteurized, boil it before drinking. It is also advisable to eat meat and fish freshly cooked.

Main Moroccan cities provide good medical facilities. Emergency treatment in government hospitals is free provided for a small fee.

Other potential problems to visitors are pickpocketing and petty theft.
