Travel to Morroco - passport which expires in under 6 months

Travel to Morroco on passport which expires in under 6 months

Hi,

I booked a short trip to Marrakech, Morroco from 17th December to 20th December 2012. I later found out (on irish foreign affairs website) that apparently your EU passport should technically be valid for 6 months but mine expires in April 2013. I have looked on the Morroco foreign affairs website also and it says (in french) for package hotels (return/roundtrip flights) you just need a passport which covers the length of stay in Morroco. Has anyone else been to Morroco for a short stay on passport which expires in less than 6 months. Should I try and get an emergency passport or will I be ok? I've seen some other posts saying people have had no problems and have also asked the Riad we'll be staying at and they seem to think it will be no problem either.

thanks

Yup, per my comment in response #3 (if you are entering with a return flight booked the period of validity can be less).

Good to know you're all sorted. Have a good trip.

I had no problem entering Morocco on my passport (which expired in less than 6 months). They stamped it at the border no problem. I loved Morocco!

Happy New Year all!

I have booked to go to Maarakech tomorrow- last minute for 5 nights- my daughters passport expires on August 13th and mine on July 16th 2013. I am having a major anxiety attack as today is Sunday and no where is open to check. We are flying Easy jet and their policy is a valid passport- no time limit specified. We both have a full 3 months on our passports which is what I'm reading is acceptable- can anyone advise me- thankyou!

Thank you- but the threads are mixed with some advice saying you need 6 months, some saying its completely fine. We have checked in for the flights both there and back on line and that went through ok. Would you suggest trying to get an email from the Morrocan Consulate?

My irish/EU passport had less than 6 months (greater than 3 months) to the expiry date when i entered Morroco (marrakech). I had no problems. They stamped my passport with visa at entry and exit. This was in December 2012.
