Implementation of new customs measures

Operation Marhaba 2022 is scheduled between mid-June to mid-September. Several measures have been taken by the ministries and departments concerned for its smooth running. In order to guarantee its success, the Customs and Indirect Tax Administration (ADII) has implemented new facilitation measures.

The measures announced by the ADII concern the automatic extension until 31/12/2022 of the validity periods of the Temporary Admission (AT) accounts for vehicles, expiring during the years 2020, 2021 and 2022.

For the persons concerned, they are invited by the same administration to contact the customs office of their choice to return the old AT card and collect the new one.

It is also a question of having an authorization for the transfer of motor vehicles imported into AT, between non-residents living in different countries if the beneficiary of the transfer (transferee) is himself the owner of the vehicle.

In addition, an easing was announced by the ADII concerning the application file for the tax benefit provided for the release for consumption of passenger vehicles imported by MREs aged 60 and over and justifying a stay in a foreigner at least 10 years old, by acceptance, instead of a registration certificate made out in the name of the beneficiary, of any document justifying the transfer of ownership of the vehicle in the name of the latter.

The authorization to drive abroad a vehicle placed under the AT regime, by the spouse or, by a descendant or an ascendant of the holder of the AT card, has been abolished by the administration in plus the possibility of granting a duplicate of the AT card on the basis of a declaration on honor of the loss of this document, subscribed by its holder, without the need to produce a declaration of loss or theft issued by the competent authorities.

In its press release, the ADII indicates that it has mobilized all the human and logistical resources necessary for a quality reception service, in accordance with the standards and regulations in force.

It should be recalled that the new measures of the 2021 finance law have introduced the obligation to declare on entering or leaving the subject territory commercial paper, means of payment and financial instruments, the amount of which is equal to or greater than 100,000 dirhams.

Customs has made the form for this declaration available to travelers, noting that failure to make this declaration is punishable by a fine equal to half of the undeclared amount.

All of the provisions as amended and supplemented are included in the attached document and in the “Moroccans of the World 2022” guide posted on the website
