      Morocco Should Repatriate its Citizens Stuck Abroad

      Moroccan officials have yet to address the desperate circumstances of Moroccan tourists stuck abroad as tourist budgets dry up and borders close.

      Paris – Moroccan officials have yet to address the desperate circumstances of Moroccan tourists stuck abroad as tourist budgets dry up and borders close.

      Moroccan authorities have certainly taken excellent prevention measures to delay the spread of the novel coronavirus in the country, including border closures aimed at containment.

      However, such measures should be accompanied by proper exceptions for Moroccans who are not residents in foreign countries that they are visiting with tourist visas.

      In France alone, at least 300 Moroccans are stuck in the country. Many will see their visas expire soon and do not have adequate funds to stay at hotels and cover daily meals.

      It is unfortunate that many countries are doing everything they can to bring their citizens back home while Moroccan authorities have so far done nothing for their own.

      Officials say they have no instructions for the time-being, and that Moroccan tourists should remain where they are.

      As Europe closes all borders and bans everyone from leaving, situations for those left behind are becoming more difficult.

      Stranded Moroccans wonder how they will purchase groceries and prepare for confinement when their budgets are depleted.

      A solution must be determined very soon to save these abandoned families who have the right to return to their country and be properly quarantined.

      I am one of many Moroccan tourists stuck in France, and I am writing to shed some light on the situation after my compatriots and I were stopped from returning to our homeland.

      We have all seen how the new coronavirus has impacted the world, and we agree that it is a serious problem which requires delicate handling.

      In consequence, some drastic changes were implemented in Morocco in the last 72 hours, including closing the borders to Moroccan citizens who are currently abroad for different purposes such as surgery, attending conferences, tourism, and visiting family.

      These drastic measures occurred without warning, in a nonchalant manner–no details were provided about the final flights to Morocco–and with immediate effect.

      This means that all flights to Morocco were canceled and travelers were left facing the unknown.

      Families with children, older people, and others who came to France on a limited budget are now homeless, as all hotels are closing.

      They are sleeping in airports and spending their days in front of the Moroccan embassy to seek help.

      The embassy, which is supposed to be the number one refuge for any Moroccan in distress, is merely collecting personal information and is not offering any concrete solutions to the situation.

      We have witnessed how the French government handled the situation of French citizens trapped in Morocco: In less than 24 hours, several planes were ready to take them home.

      This plan could have been implemented for Moroccan citizens as well, but no one seems to care about what we are enduring right now, and how difficult the situation is becoming day by day, especially with France’s current containment measures.

      It is our right to be repatriated to our country, and we will agree to all the conditions that come with that provided we will be able
      to rejoin our loved ones.

      Morocco Should Move to Repatriate Moroccans Stranded Overseas

      Morocco should urgently come to the rescue of its citizens stranded abroad.



      The Moroccan government council.

      By Samir Bennis - Samir Bennis is a political analyst.

      Apr 19, 2020

      The Moroccan government must act quickly to repatriate Moroccans stranded overseas. After the government announced the extension of the state of emergency for an additional month, thousands across the country are wondering with great concern about the fate of more than 18,000 Moroccans stuck in Europe, Asia, and the Americas.

      Will the government continue to ignore their fate as if they were foreigners, as if it were not its duty to pay attention to its citizens’ psychological and material ordeal and the suffering of their relatives in Morocco? What if a significant number of those Moroccans were to be infected with the virus while away from their country and loved ones, or if the health or psychological condition of those who traveled abroad for medical treatment worsened?

      It is true that the government has been effective, proactive, and resilient in addressing the COVID-19 pandemic, taking unprecedented steps to prevent its spread in the country and save the lives of thousands of Moroccans.

      The government has also taken bold and drastic decisions to stem the spread of the coronavirus. When it came to choosing between the economy and people’s safety, Morocco gave precedence to protecting its people and avoiding an unprecedented catastrophe.

      The government moved quickly to close its borders and suspend all international flights to and from Morocco and launched a COVID-19 response fund at the instructions of King Mohammed VI.

      Morocco’s government subsequently imposed a nationwide lockdown and launched an unprecedented media campaign to raise awareness about the lethal nature of the virus and the need to abide by all safety measures.

      The government also took a number of measures to mitigate the economic impact of COVID-19 on millions of Moroccans by providing stipends to workers in the formal and informal sectors. In addition, the government mobilized factories throughout the country to produce millions of masks, making the wearing of masks mandatory.

      What has made millions of Moroccans especially proud of their country is the decision of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to cover accommodation costs for more than two thousand Moroccans stranded overseas at a time when big powers such as the US and the UK asked their citizens stranded in Morocco to cover their own return tickets.

      However, the government’s silence about Moroccans stranded abroad since the suspension of international flights about a month ago is baffling. It is unfathomable that no government official has offered an explanation as to why Moroccans stranded abroad are unable to return home, or given any indication that the government is considering their situation and analyzing the actions needed to reunite them with their loved ones.

      If the state was able, in a short time, to make courageous and drastic decisions that were met with applause and praise from many international media outlets, what has prevented it from effectively addressing the situation of Moroccans stranded abroad and taking the necessary measures to arrange repatriation flights?

      In the first weeks of the epidemic in China, Morocco sent a plane to Wuhan to repatriate around 100 Moroccan students who had sought the help of King Mohammed VI to return home. At the time, Morocco was among a handful of countries that came to the rescue of their citizens fearing the spread of the virus in China.

      Just as it addressed the situation of those students, the Moroccan government must do what is necessary to repatriate the more than 18,000 Moroccans who feel abandoned and left behind by their government at a critical time when their lives are at high risk.

      Unlike the Moroccan students in Wuhan, these Moroccans are not longtime residents in the countries where they are stranded; rather, they traveled for tourism, work, or medical treatment. Many of them no longer have enough money to meet their needs, do not speak the language of the countries where they are stranded, or their visas have expired.

      Others have seen their health conditions deteriorate as they have run out of the medicines needed to treat their illnesses, while parents have suddenly found themselves far from their children in Morocco.

      Read also: Morocco Should Repatriate its Citizens Stuck Abroad

      If we were to put Moroccans stranded abroad and Moroccan students in Wuhan in the balance as to who deserves the government’s attention the most, the balance would tilt in favor of the first group. Moroccans who traveled abroad for a short period of time have both legal and financial limitations in terms of their visas, the amount of hard currency brought with them from Morocco, and accommodation.

      Conversely, as the Moroccan students in Wuhan can be considered longtime residents in China, they had far fewer limitations in terms of visas, financial resources, and accommodation. Therefore, one could argue that the government was not necessarily obliged to repatriate them. Nevertheless, for human consideration and on the orders of the King, the government moved quickly to repatriate them and put them in quarantine for 14 days.

      The silence and reluctance of the government to take the right decision to repatriate the 18,000 Moroccans currently stranded overseas is shocking. The fear that these people might carry the virus and exacerbate the infection rate in the country is understandable, and speaks to the government’s concern that the COVID-19 situation in Morocco could spiral out of control.

      That being said, from a logistical standpoint, it is neither daunting nor impossible for the state to repatriate them and put them in quarantine for 14 days. There are many empty hotels in different regions of the country that the government can use to quarantine repatriated nationals and ensure they are not infected.

      If Morocco cannot repatriate them all at once, the state should start the repatriation process gradually, giving priority to the elderly, those with vulnerable health conditions, and pregnant women. In addition, the government could also disperse them throughout the country depending on their geographical affiliations, which will help avoid overcrowding and pressure on one particular region.

      The state does not only face a legal responsibility in accordance with the constitution and the international conventions and covenants to which Morocco is a party—it also faces a human and moral responsibility.

      It would be counterintuitive and senseless for the government to continue overlooking the dire situation of these Moroccans, especially as we are less than ten days away from the holy month of Ramadan.

      The Moroccan press should also pay attention to this group of Moroccans who suffer in silence and face the unknown.

      Other Arab countries, such as Tunisia, Egypt, and Mauritania, have repatriated their citizens stranded abroad and Morocco should follow suit.

      The Moroccan government must take into account that the psychological ordeal of Moroccans stranded abroad and their families will worsen as time passes.

      Morocco must move quickly to redress the situation, or else its mishandling of the situation of Moroccans stranded abroad will leave a heavy stain on its overall response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

      Marokkanen wagen oversteek: terug naar Afrika


      Door Redactie

      Updated Vandaag, 00:31 Vandaag, 00:28 in BUITENLAND

      De coronacrisis zet veel op z’n kop, zo ook de migrantenstroom van Noord-Afrika naar Spanje. Gestrande Marokkanen gaan merkwaardig genoeg ineens voor astronomische bedragen precies de andere kant op. Terug naar Afrika.

      Mensenhandelaren weten handig een graantje mee te pikken van de wereldwijde coronaperikelen. Marokkanen zouden tot wel vijfduizend euro betalen om de oversteek van het zwaar getroffen Spanje naar hun eveneens afgesloten thuisland te maken. Dat schrijft The Telegraph. De migrantenstroom vanuit Noord-Afrika gaat volgens de Britse krant overigens ook gewoon door. Jaarlijks maken duizenden migranten in rubberbootjes de levensgevaarlijke oversteek op de Straat van Gibraltar.

      Volgens lokale media zouden in maart zo’n honderd Marokkaanse migranten op twee bootjes zijn gestapt om in de buurt van de Marokkaanse kuststad Tanger aan te meren. Dat is illegaal, want ook het Noord-Afrikaanse land heeft de grenzen gesloten. Zo zitten er nog enkele duizenden Nederlanders in Marokko vast. Een eerste repatriëringsvlucht met driehonderd landgenoten vertrok zondagavond naar ons land.

      Er geldt een volledig inreisverbod om verspreiding van het virus tegen te gaan. Marokkanen die in het buitenland zitten, mogen daarom niet terug. Dat verklaart waarom er zulke hoge bedragen betaald zouden zijn om de verboden oversteek te maken. Ook de ramadan zou moslims bewegen om eerder terug te gaan naar hun familie. Er zijn zo’n tweeduizend Marokkanen gestrand in Spanje. In Marokko is er sprake van ruim vierduizend besmettingen en ’slechts’ 160 coronadoden.

      Mijn nicht zit hier ook al meer dan een maand opgesloten. Ze mist haar kinderen ontzettend.

      Maar ik heb haar proberen uit te leggen dat het goed is wat Rabat doet. Want het coronagevaar komt van Westerse coronatoeristen en rabat gaat echt geen risico nemen met Marokkanen die in Westerse coronagebieden hebben geleefd.

      Ik begrijp het wel van Rabat maar ze kunnen ze toch in quarantaine houden en dan is het probleem volgens mij opgelost.

      Je moet wat als overheid en ik sta achter de aanpak van Rabat.

      Beetje in dubio maar toch begrijp ik de harde houding van Rabat. Ik had als leider ook niet anders gehandeld.

      Government Reiterates Position on Repatriation of Moroccans Stranded Abroad

      Morocco’s foreign minister said citizens stranded abroad have an indisputable right to return home, but repatriation is not “necessarily appropriate” given the COVID-19 pandemic.

      By Morgan Hekking - May 7, 2020

      Rabat – Morocco’s government reiterated today the importance of rigorously preparing for the repatriation of Moroccans stranded abroad due to the COVID-19 pandemic, so their return does not pose a threat to public health.

      An estimated 27,850 Moroccans are barred from returning home due to restrictions on international travel and border closures. Morocco suspended all flights in and out of the country, shut down maritime links with Europe, and closed its land borders in the first few weeks of March as the novel coronavirus began its rapid spread.

      Since the country officially entered a state of emergency on March 20, Morocco has facilitated the return of thousands of foreigners stuck within its borders, but has so far failed to repatriate any Moroccans back home.

      Government spokesperson and education minister Said Amzazi stressed “the importance of ensuring the necessary conditions for their return” during a press briefing after a virtual meeting of the government council today, May 7.

      The government is closely monitoring the situation of its stranded compatriots, he said, adding that the government council expressed satisfaction with the efforts of Morocco’s diplomatic representations abroad to accommodate and support 5,704 of its stranded nationals.

      “The return of Moroccans stranded abroad must take into account the evolution of the spread of the virus, within the framework of the overall approach adopted by the kingdom to face this pandemic, so that this return does not constitute a risk either for these people or for their country,” Amzazi said.

      Morocco has faced harsh criticism for its delay in facilitating the return of Moroccans abroad, and stranded nationals have pleaded with the government, asking for efforts to repatriate them. Since evacuating Moroccan students from Wuhan, China in early February, Morocco has yet to execute similar repatriation operations.

      On April 23, Morocco’s Minister of Foreign Affairs Nasser Bourita announced that the country is planning to repatriate all citizens stranded abroad, but did not specify when such returns will take place.

      He firmly stated that repatriation must take place in the best conditions without putting the health of the country or the repatriated citizens at risk. The operation needs rigorous planning, based on meticulous criteria, and in coordination with several government departments, he added.

      Bourita explained to state media Maghreb Arab Press (MAP) that Moroccans’ right to return home is natural and indisputable, but “what is obvious is not necessarily appropriate in this exceptional context.”

      Head of Government Saad Eddine El Othmani reiterated Bourita’s caution during a press conference this evening on the development of the COVID-19 situation, underlining that “there will be a solution” for Moroccans stranded abroad once the country opens its borders.

      Despite the mobilization of consulates and embassies to support stranded Moroccans, many have taken to social media to stress that repatriation is the only solution to their plight.

      “We cannot stand this anymore. We ask for our immediate repatriation. They can put us in quarantine. We are ready for all measures, just get us back home,” said one Moroccan woman stranded in France.

      With the #bring_us_home campaign, Moroccans are pleading for the government to expedite the repatriation process: “Morocco forgot about us, but we did not. Bring us home, please.”

      Standaard Re: Hoe zit het met de repatriering van Marokkanen die in het buitenland vastzitten?

      Marokko voert een niets ontziende coronabeleid uit.

      Alle coronopatienten worden onder toezicht van de overheid gesteld in een daarvoor bestemde verblijf.

      In Nederland wordt er geen toezicht gehouden op coronapatienten. Daar kunnen ook psychische pattienten tussen zitten die bewust het virus blijven verspreiden.

      Nederland doet dit fout. Marokko is goed bezig en het beleid van Marokko is doorgedrongen tot het Spaanse en Franse parlement.

      1. Marokko sluit alle coronapatienten op in ziekenhuizen,verpleeghuizen,en noodhopsitalen opdat het coronavirus niet verspreid.

      2. Blijf thuis als je ziek bent; is geen intilligente lock down. Alle coronopatienten opsluiten tot ze dood gaan of beter worden is een beter beleid. Hoe ziek het ook klinkt.


      3. Marokko kent niet meer dan 200 doden.

      4. Rabat zit nu ruimte te maken om de 30.ooo gestrande Marokkaanse onderdanen veilig terug te laten keren en op te vangen in speciaal gebouwde huizen.

      Alle coronapatienten opsluiten is de beste tactiek en strategie om het virus in te dammen.

      Leunen op het gezonde verstand van de mens is dom,zoals Den Haag doet, en het virus kan zich naderhand blijven verspreiden.

      Ik vertrouw de onverantwoordelijke Nederlanders niet. Zeker niet met het mooie weer. Die Hollanders geven hen leven voor een dag zon.

      ALLE CORONAPATIENTEN ONDER TOEZICHT VAN EEN DOOR DE OVERHEID GEWEZEN OPVANGPLAATSEN NET ZOALNG ZE BETER WORDEN.
