ADII and airport rights, less tolerated tolerances

In airports and other international entrances and exits in Morocco, certain restrictive measures at the level of Moroccan Customs, which were once tolerated, have been subject to a facelift. Indeed, the Customs Administration, remembering the good memories of all categories of travelers, has just put in place rules to be observed both when entering and when leaving the national territory.

Already imposed on Moroccan residents and now extended to foreign travelers and our compatriots residing abroad (RME), these measures relate to the gift component of travel to the Kingdom. From now on, travelers of all categories must pay duties and taxes for any gifts brought back exceeding the modest sum of 2,000 dirhams.

As a traveler visiting Morocco, you are authorized to bring back from abroad, without customs formalities or payment of import duties and taxes, gifts in limited quantities and without commercial character within the limit of an overall value. from 2,000 dirhams indicates the Administration of Customs and Indirect Taxes (ADII). An advertising campaign to this effect has been launched in airports and other exits and entries of travelers in the national territory.

Outside this limit, the goods in question must be declared with payment of the corresponding taxes and duties.

The Customs Administration specifies, moreover, the junk exempted, without payment of the duties and taxes usually collected on importation. Are now allowed without declaration, therefore, personal clothing effects in use, a bottle of perfume (150 ml) and a bottle of eau de toilette (250 ml), 200 grams of manufactured tobacco (a carton of cigarettes), a one-liter bottle of wine and a one-liter bottle of spirits or another alcohol of the same capacity, souvenirs or gifts in limited quantities and without commercial character within the limit of an overall value of two thousand (2,000 ) dirhams.

It goes without saying that the ADII leaves a window open to authorized usual personal items, smartphone, laptop, wheelchair, sports equipment (racket, surfboard, golf equipment, etc.) children’s toys, etc.

These objects and articles are admitted without customs formalities whether they are carried in accompanied or unaccompanied baggage. Any imported item not covered by these considerations must be the subject of a customs declaration and be subject to the payment of the corresponding duties and taxes and the completion, where applicable, of formalities other than customs (health control, veterinary control, control with the National Telecommunications Regulatory Agency, etc.).

It is also specified that the import of dirhams is tolerated up to the sum of 2,000 dirhams. ” By importing dirhams in excess of the authorized threshold, you are committing an exchange offense and will be liable to penalties. “, warns the ADII. For non-residents personal items, authorized, must nevertheless be re-exported at the end of the stay. Otherwise, you will have to declare them and pay the taxes and duties.

Even the drug component was not left out in the affair. For medicines for personal use, it is recommended to produce the relevant medical documents (medical certificate, prescription, etc.) and to undertake for foreigners and RME to re-export the unused quantity at the end of the stay in the Kingdom.

With regard to donations made to certain entities, it is possible to import objects or goods intended to be offered free of charge to the State, to a local authority, to a public establishment, to an association recognized as being of public utility or to a charity upon completion of the required formalities (beneficiary and donor). But here we are already no longer in the field of simple travel.

We imagine that on social networks it will be talked about, especially at the level of the RME to which we granted 10 times more tolerance of the gift. At the free-shop level, this will also be felt in terms of turnover, especially for luxury items, watches, jewelry, etc.
