Morocco typically uses type C & E electric outlets. Plug type C is the plug which has two round pins and plug type E is the plug which has two round pins and a hole for the socket’s male earthing pin. Morocco typically uses 220V and 50Hz. Please refer to your home country outlet type to determine if you need electrical adapters or possibly a converter. Note: Usually phone and computer chargers have a current converter in them, where other electronics like curling irons, straighteners, and hair dryers may not.
- Cell Phone & Chargers
- Your phone may or may not work in Morocco. Please consult your network provider before departure.
- Headlamp / Flashlight
- if you decide to roam about in the Sahara or in the often dim-lit streets at night.
THINGS NOT TO PACK
- they are illegal
- difficult to walk around in on some streets
- Short Shorts or Mini-Skirts
- You likely won’t be shamed if you wear these items, but women in Morocco dress modestly, and covering your thighs and knees is most important in their culture.
- Unnecessary Valuables
- flashy jewelry, unnecessary electronic devices, etc
Note: Morocco is safe to visit, but we highly recommend bringing only the devices that you will use like a cell phone & camera. Having multiple devices, especially in public, can make one a target for theft. It also gives more opportunity for more items to get lost and we don’t want either for any of our travelers.
