King Mohammed VI has given more instructions to a number of institutions to facilitate the 2021 Summer holidays for Moroccan expatriates, whose majority could not visit the home country last year because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Sovereign has thus instructed the Mohammed V Foundation for Solidarity as well as Moroccan embassies and consulates abroad to mobilize to assist the Moroccan diaspora travelling back home for the summer holidays.
In this vein, King Mohammed VI has urged the Mohammed V Foundation for Solidarity to put at the disposal of the members of the Moroccan community a special support system on board the ships operating the crossing back home, the Royal Office said in a statement this Sunday.
The Mohammed V Foundation for Solidarity will thus facilitate, during the crossing as well as during the disembarkation, all administrative, customs and health formalities, so that the journey, arrival and stay in Morocco unfold in a safe, smooth and satisfactory way.
The other traditional methods of reception and assistance deployed by the Mohammed V Foundation for Solidarity, in Morocco and abroad, will remain in force, the Royal Office said.
The Sovereign also gave his instructions so that Morocco’s Embassies and Consulates be mobilized in this operation.
Thus, the diplomatic and consular representations are called upon to facilitate all the consular and administrative steps required by the Moroccan citizens and the foreigners wishing to visit Morocco, and to meet in an effective way their requests and expectations, the statement added.
Earlier Sunday, King Mohammed VI urged all transportation companies and all other stakeholders in the field to facilitate the Moroccan diaspora’s return home for the summer holidays through offering affordable travel fees.
The King also urged all tourism operators, both in the field of transport and the hotel industry, to take the necessary measures to welcome the members of the Moroccan community living abroad in the best conditions and at the best prices.
