LIVING IN MOROCCO

The cost of living in Morocco

If you are moving to Morocco from the USA, you will find the cost of living is around half of what you are used to. However, like many places in the world, your cost of living depends on your lifestyle. The average costs of living in Morocco are lower than most places, however, there are a few exceptions to remember. Alcohol is around the same price as USA, imported goods are expensive, and you should definitely factor in the cost of private healthcare in Morocco, as you will have to pay a lot otherwise.

Do you need to send documents urgently to Morocco to help secure a place to stay before moving?

Eurosender offers fast envelope delivery with our Express delivery service.

The job market in Morocco

As the economy is slowly growing, the job market in Morocco is improving and most job opportunities for foreigners in Morocco can be found in major cities such as Rabat, Marrakech and Casablanca. Industries include technology, engineering, communications, IT and manufacturing. It is always a good idea to brush up on your language, too. English-speaking jobs for foreigners in Morocco can be quite competitive, so it helps to speak the language.


Education in Morocco

The quality of the school system in Morocco is quite poor compared to other countries, and underfunding means that many children in rural areas are still unable to access compulsory education. School in Morocco is compulsory from ages 7 to 13, and there are plenty of English and French-speaking international schools and private schools available for those moving to Morocco with children.

Primary School
Age: 7-13
Compulsory: Yes
Middle School
Age: 14-16
Compulsory: Yes
Upper Secondary School
Age: 16-18
Compulsory: No

Healthcare in Morocco

Due to low salaries and lack of funding, many healthcare facilities in Morocco are understaffed and the quality of healthcare is a lot lower, compared to the west. Although the quality of healthcare is better in major cities, it is still recommended to take out private insurance to access private healthcare for your length of stay in Morocco.


Driving in Morocco

For foreigners moving to Morocco from USA, UK, Europe or anywhere else, it is recommended to obtain an international driving permit, as well as carry your local license and passport when driving in Morocco. It is also important to remember to adhere to the local driving laws, as Moroccan traffic police are known to be quite corrupt, especially if you are a foreigner in Morocco.
