Notice to all Swiss travellers in Morocco

The Moroccan authorities have set up sanitary stations equipped with showers, shower rooms and water in the car park of Tanger Med, Tanger City, Ksar Sghir and Oued Laou for the camper vans blocked on the border of Ceuta and Melilla.

Since the beginning of this week, thanks to the organization of the Embassy, 14 special flights have enabled our fellow citizens to return home to Switzerland.

However, many of them are still in Morocco. This is undoubtedly a tense situation in a context that is changing enormously fast. We are aware that many of you wish to return to Switzerland as soon as possible and that you are in an exceptional situation. We understand this and share your concern. 

According to our latest information, we inform you that the border with the Spanish enclave of Ceute is open. Only with a valid ferry ticket you can enter the border post. In the enclosure you will receive a confirmation (PDF, 324.8 kB, multilingual: French, German), which should facilitate your departure at the Spanish customs.

If you have not yet managed to leave Morocco, please contact our embassy immediately via email: rabat@eda.admin.ch The following information is required: 

  • Surname, first name
  • Passport number
  • Date of birth
  • email
  • Where are you
  • News 

Your details will enable us to compile a list of people waiting to return and work on a solution. If you have decided to stay in Morocco, we also ask you to inform us. In the latter case we will contact you individually at a later date.

Any travelers in Morocco who have not yet registered with the Travel Admin application are asked to do so immediately.
