Speaking on the occasion, His Excellency said, “The Government of India and Morocco have agreed on a newly revised air service agreement which will have certainly a positive impact on facilitating and boosting tourist movement between the two countries. Foreseeing the growth in the number of Indians travelling to Morocco, we needed to create a seamless experience for Indian travellers in applying for visas.  The Embassy of the Kingdom of Morocco is glad to entrust the responsibility to CKGS by appointing them as our representatives to open visa application centres in India.”

He added: “We want to encourage more and more Indians to consider travelling to Morocco and at the same time provide a faster and reliable experience in applying for visas. To promote Morocco in India, we also have plans to open a full-fledged Moroccan National Tourism Office in Delhi. To invite Indian filmmakers to shoot in Morroco, Moroccan government offers important incentives such as reimbursement of 20% of the total expenses for any artistic products like movie, documentaries and films”.
