CAIRO – 7 September 2017: Qatar is no longer requiring visas for Moroccans entering the miniscule Gulf country, an attempt to promote air transport and tourist inflows, according to Morocco’s official MAP news agency.
The Qatari regime is launching a program exempting 80 countries from previous visa entry requirements in order to attract tourist pools, after the tourist industry suffered given an embargo by four Arab states on Qatar since June.
Qatar’s ties with a number of its Arab and Gulf states have been strained through the summer, since Qatar’s Prime Minister Sheikh Abdullah bin Nasser Al-Thani was quoted by a state-run news agency describing GCC foreign policy with Iran as “unwise.”
On Monday, June 5, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Libya, and Yemen cut all diplomatic ties with Qatar for its “continuous support for terrorism”, banning Qatar from using their airspace and seaports.
