It's also good for temporary admission; http://www.douane.gov.ma/EDouane/DMCV/AT/menu_AT02.htm gets you to the form to fill in, and from there you can either print or e-submit the form. Nice idea.
Unfortunately I don't think the border post at Guergerat is online yet so you're back to the old system (which worked fairly well, just slowly)
Be nice if Mori followed the example, but that won't be tomorrow...
Complete your Moroccan temporary import form on the Internet
In order to enter Morocco you need to complete a declaration of temporary importation form (D16TER). This is normally a three-part no-carbon-required form with a green copy, yellow copy and white copy.
However, you can now complete your temporary import form (D16TER) for Morocco online, then print it off for handing over when you get there. This saves having to find out which window you need to queue at for the form and means you don't have the hassle of working out how to complete it when all you really want to do is get through the border and ride!
Go to Douanes marocaines and take the third option (D16TER), then the second option (Saisie and Edition). Now complete as follows:
Prénom and Nom: Your given name and family name
If you have been to Morocco before you will have a police number in your passport in the format 999999AA, in which case click on Étrangers non résident (non-resident foreigners) and enter the number in the box.
If you haven't been to Morocco before, click 'autres'.
Immatriculation: your registration number (no spaces)
Marque: BMW (or whatever)
Type: 1200GSA (or whatever) followed by 'MOTO' if it's a motorbike
Pays: Grande Bretagne
Date de 1ere mise: enter the date of vehicle first registration
Chassis no: your VIN (vehicle identity number).
Then press Imprimer and print the page that appears.
Tim should it just print and go to printer when I press Imprimer or print from file ? also it dose not have my make land rover for a car do you still put MOTO in as well
Think may have sorted it out will not work with firefox It will not print out if you have not got a the police number !
Yes have got that far with it but it will not go to print page with out a police number in it try putting .... and others but will not take that it will work if you just type II so can gross that out when get there and write in police number after have got it stamp in passport
I went to the form and started to fill it out. I got to the drop-down list for country and could not find the USA listed. Both Canada and Mexico are there but I didn't see the USA, the closest is URSS. I don't speak or read French so maybe I didn't recognize the spelling used, but I could figure out most of the rest. Is URSS French for USA? We will be entering Morocco next month and this could be handy (if I can figure it out ).
I saw the details of the service stuck up in a customs office on the Morocco/Mauri border.
The last time I entered Morocco (via Tanger) they had run out of the tri-part forms and the entire contents of the previous three ferries were lined up at customs waiting for someone to arrive with fresh pads. As it happens I could have gone through without delay as I always carry a blank form, but I didn't have forms for the two guys who were travelling with me.
When you print the resulting web page you get three copies printed out, the equivalent of the green, yellow and white NCR forms. Two of the copies fit on one A4 page, the third copy on a second A4 page.
The third copy (on the second A4 page) is the one retained by the customs at the port of entry--Exemplaire service 1 (Entrée).
You then go on your way with parts one and two on the first A4 page.
When you exit Morocco they presumably tear this page in half, you get to keep the top part--Exemplaire déclarant--and the exit customs retain the bottom part--Exemplaire service 2 (Apurement)--for audit.
