Market Update 2023

According to OEC, in 2021, Morocco was the number 56 economy in the world in terms of GDP, the number 61 in total exports, the number 54 in total imports, the number 122 economy in terms of GDP per capita and the number 78 most complex economy according to the Economic Complexity Index.

Morocco exported US$184.05 Million during 2021 to the United Arab Emirates and imported US$670.01 Million during 2021 from the UAE, according to the Trading Economics database.

The Morocco-UAE freight market is anticipated to witness substantial growth in 2023. This is attributable to the strengthening trade relations and economic ties between the two countries. The UAE’s well-established logistics infrastructure, including advanced ports and efficient transportation networks, together with Morocco’s strategic location as a hub for trade and investment in Africa, contribute to the positive outlook for the freight market. As a result, businesses involved in freight forwarding, shipping, and logistics are likely to benefit from the increasing demand for cargo transportation between Morocco and the UAE in the upcoming year.

Banned Products

Morocco has certain restrictions on the importation of goods and prohibits certain items from being brought into the country. The banned products for importing to Morocco include narcotics, drugs, and other controlled substances. Firearms, ammunition, and explosives are also strictly prohibited. Additionally, agricultural products that do not comply with sanitary and phytosanitary regulations, such as certain fruits, vegetables, and animal products, are banned. Counterfeit goods, pirated materials, and items that infringe on intellectual property rights are also prohibited. It is essential for importers to be aware of these regulations and ensure compliance to avoid any legal issues and adhere to Moroccan customs laws and regulations.

Documents & Customs Clearance

One thing to take into account when exporting cargo internationally is customs clearance. You must be aware of the customs clearance regulations of the destination countries when shipping cargo from Morocco.

The following documentation must be given to local customs for international shipments by the supplier, consignee, or intermediary:

A commercial invoice
A packing list
A bill of lading
A certificate of origin

Rules & Regulations

Importing goods into Morocco entails complying with specific rules and regulations. Importers must be registered with the Moroccan authorities, such as the General Administration of Customs and Indirect Taxes (ADII), and obtain an importer identification number. They must also provide relevant customs documentation. Certain products might require additional permits, licenses, or certificates, such as agricultural goods, pharmaceuticals, and chemicals. Import duties, taxes, and fees are typically levied based on the value of the imported goods, and importers may need to engage a licensed customs broker to facilitate the clearance process. Compliance with labeling requirements, quality standards, and local product regulations is crucial. Staying updated on any changes to import regulations is highly important to ensure seamless and lawful importation of goods into Morocco.
