The repatriation of French nationals stranded in Morocco continues under the watchful eye of local authorities and French diplomats accredited to Morocco. More than 30,000 French and Moroccans residing in France have been repatriated since mid-March, in compliance with restrictive measures.

Two reassuring tweets were posted on Tuesday by the French Embassy in Morocco. “Direction Casablanca airport and then Paris CDG on an Air France flight, thanks to the support of the Moroccan authorities,” reads one Twitter post.

More precisely, the second tweet from the French Embassy clarified that apart from the flights chartered for the occasion, some expatriates and MRE residing in France have returned to France by ferry: “Today, a 6th ferry departed from Tangier to France, as well as 2 flights from Casablanca. 32,000 French and Moroccans resident in France have been able to return, operations are continuing, in coordination with the Moroccan authorities.”

While since mid-March, more than 200 special flights have enabled the repatriation of more than 30,000 French nationals from the Kingdom, they have increased eight-fold, at a rate of “8 flights per week”, scheduled from the airport of Mohammed V airport in Casablanca to France.

Regarding the ferry departures organized by France for the benefit of those who have travelled to Morocco by camper van, a dozen maritime routes have been organised since Tuesday as promised by the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Yves Le Drian. In addition to the first two ferries from Tangier-Med to Sète and Marseille, other crossings will also be scheduled “next week” to Malaga (Spain) on 5-6-7-8-9 June, Sète on 9 June and Marseille from Tangier-Med.
