Are You Moving To Morocco And Need A Removals Company?
Are you planning on moving to Morocco? Many expats have reservations about moving to an Islamic country, although Morocco has a fairly liberal outlook. The official language is Arabic, with French being more commonly used in business.
Morocco benefits from a low cost of living with property prices being very reasonable compared to many other destinations.
Expats are not required to secure employment before moving to Morocco, they do need to apply for a resident card or carte du sejour. Most expats will move to Morocco for business reasons, taking up employment in engineering, humanitarian work, teaching and tourism.
Accommodation if you are thinking of moving to Morocco
There is a wide choice of property available in Morocco; most expats choose to rent an apartment or house at least until they become familiar with the country. The current average cost of rent per month in the city, for a 3 bedroomed apartment is MAD 6658 (£526) and outside the city MAD 3459 (£273).
Buying property in Morocco is becoming far more popular with expats, due mostly to very low property prices. To purchase a three bedroomed apartment in the city the cost on average is MAD 14,300 (£1,130) per square metre and outside the city MAD 8196 (£648). Very much lower compared to UK prices.
