As a tourist it is only possible to stay in Morocco three months a year and if you wish to extend the stay you need to go to the Immigration office or Bureau des Étrangers, where you can obtain the prolongation of the tourist visa for three months.

Some time ago it was possible to register children under 16 years in the passport of their parents but at the moment it is no longer allowed.
Procedures for access to Morocco with vehicle
If you have thought of accessing Morocco from Spain with your own car and the relevant passport control, we will have to carry out another procedure, which is that when arriving at the Moroccan customs we will have to request the form for the vehicle, fill it out and present it with all the papers of our vehicle in order.
Documentation of the necessary vehicle
International Insurance (Better known as “the green card”) that you will have to request it from your insurance company.
If the car you are traveling with is not in your name, you must carry a certified authorization from the owner who expressly authorizes you to drive the vehicle through Morocco. If the vehicle is business as in the previous case you must carry authorization and accreditation of the company.
You can only take one vehicle per person and this is associated with your passport number, so you should not leave the country without it. When you leave the border, you must cancel the vehicle’s export permit.
How to fill in the temporary import permit for the vehicle?
This process is carried out in the Moroccan customs, although to simplify the process the Moroccan customs make available to the users a web form to carry out the procedures via on-line. In this form, the owner’s information, passport number, identification of the frame, model and mark of the vehicle, registration plate and date of registration must be completed compulsorily.
It is necessary that the person requesting the permit for the vehicle has already passed the visa process and has in his passport the stamp of the customs.
