Tourism in Morocco continues to climb towards its pre-pandemic levels. The very accelerated pace of the recovery portends an overperformance of 2019 for the summer period. The month of June recorded more than 1,140,000 tourist arrivals against 1,092,000 in June 2019, i.e. a growth of 5%.
The tourism sector maintained its sustained pace across all aggregators, including the number of tourist arrivals. The month of June has, in fact, recorded more than 1,140,000 tourist arrivals. A performance exceeding that of June 2019, having seen the arrival of 1,092,000, i.e. a growth of 5%. This growth is further accentuated compared to the same period of 2021 to reach 235%.
Moroccans residing abroad contributed strongly to this growth, with the arrival of 620,000 MREs in June, i.e. a growth of 27% compared to June 2019. These arrivals will peak during July and August 2022.
Several factors are contributing to the acceleration of this recovery, including the strengthening of air capacity which exceeds that of 2019, the various partnerships signed with tour operators to secure a large number of arrivals and the various measures undertaken in favor of attractiveness of the destination, such as the launch of the electronic visa from July 10, and whose impacts will manifest themselves on medium-term arrivals to the Kingdom.
