Sending money from Morocco

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

So, apparently you cannot send money from Morocco unless it's for school purposes and I think the maximum allowance is $2,000. I believe you cannot take more than around $2,000 + outside of Morocco either. Oh, and it's illegal to take Moroccan currency out of the country all together. What's with that? My husband is trying to find a way to get his family to send his money to us and there is no way unless we find someone to send it via Western Union from another country.

Has anyone had any luck with this?

Morocco's strict with this. I've had a guard at the airport ask me how much money I was leaving with. I also have seen a guard count the money of a person in front of me.

And, yes, in order to send money out of the country there seem to be strict guidelines. You need to prove the child out of country is dependent on your support in order to send the money to them. Even under those circumstances, I read it's hard to be allowed.

It is possible that he can get a prepaid visa and put his money on the visa and use it almost anywhere in any country. Generally there isnt a limit to what you can put on one that I know of. I know it's not exactly cash, but it's spendable that way. And it's is a LOT cheaper than western union.

In the last 5 times that I have traveled to Casablanca, I have not had any issues with taking currency out of the country. My first trip I had no idea you could not leave with there currency. I had about 3000 DH's and one officer downstairs where they check your luggage before you board said you cannot have this money, I said I had no clue. He asked another officer and he looked at my passport and said let her through and give her back her money. unsure.gif So anyway, my next 4 trips I just put what left over money I have in a envelope sealed or in my jean pocket and they have never questioned me at all nor looked in the envelope. But I do not have over 500 dhs when I come back to U.S. now, or as one said you can just leave it behind for your next visit.

I guess I better start leaving my money behind or spending it LOL...one of these days they are gonna keep it I guess. headbonk.gif

That prepaid Visa thing sounds like a good idea, but I have practically been in every store shopping including Marjane which is the largest grocery chains there and they do not have any prepaid credit cards like that. It's one or the other it seems in Morocco, the wealthy have credit cards or you use cash only (which is what the majority of people living there do).

Hope you find a good way....

The prepaid credit card can be bought in the US and money transferred to it from a Moroccan bank. Visas and MC are internationally used and accept all types of currencies. :)

My husband tried to send me money from Morocco but was told he could only send it from some place in Rabat... He couldnt send to me though bc we dont have the same last name at the time.. Tell ur husband to look into that, ask at his local moneygram location.. If your husband is here with you his parents should be able to send to him
