The United Kingdom now recognises the Moroccan vaccination certificates. That’s what the UK announced today. As a result, travellers from Morocco can travel to the UK (and EU) with such a pass without any worries.
The certificate allows the carrier to demonstrate that it is unlikely that it will carry the coronavirus because it has been fully vaccinated, recovered from a Coronavirus infection or recently tested negative. Morocco in turn accepts the certificates issued by the UK.
The British recognition of the Moroccan vaccination pass comes more than three weeks after the European Union (EU) made a similar agreement with Morocco. Morocco is currently the only African and Arab country with such a status in the European Union.
However, the UK authorities did comment on the vaccines administered in Morocco. For example, only the AstraZeneca, Pfizer, Moderna and Janssen Vaccines are recognised in the UK and people who have received the Sinopharm vaccine are not considered vaccinated by the UK.
France recently decided to recognise the Sinopharm vaccine, provided that travellers from Morocco receive an extra dose of Pfizer or Moderna.
