Question Visa/Permit for Western Sahara?

Hi folks,

Someone has mentioned that I need a Moroccan "permit" to enter Western Sahara in addition to visa. I never found any confirmation by Googling, the Moroccan embassy phone doesn't answer today. Can someone confirm or deny that info?

I do not need a visa to visit Morocco.

Hi,

You do not need an entry permit for the Western Sahara.
From - e.g. - www.gov.uk:


British nationals visiting as tourists for up to three months do not need a visa. Make sure your passport is stamped when you enter the territory.


Happy travels,

Gee

We entered Western Sahara in 2009. There was no visa or anything else required.

Even inlands of the part of WS occupied by Morocco, you don't need a permit. But military won't be happy if they find you near the berm.

You won't need a special permit but you will want to have multiple copies of your passport and vehicle information for the police checkpoints.
