|Date of Border Crossing||January 2006|
|Point of Entry||Ceuta|
|Passport and Visa||Passport has to be valid for at least another 6 months but no visa was required. You do however need a white Entry form. Ask for those when you buy your tickets for the ferry and have them filled out by the time you get to the border.|
|Insurance||Our Green Insurance Card from Europe covers Morocco and this got checked at the border. If you don't have insurance you can buy it at the border.|
|Drivers Licence||Did not get checked, but I am sure that officially you are required to have one.|
|Motorcycle papers||You only need your vehicles registration papers from home. At the border at the 'Vehicle Customs Office' you then have to pick up a green form which you have to fill out. They basically want to know your licence plate number, type and model of vehicle and chassis number.|
|How it went||
On driving up to the border we passed a lot of guys trying
to flag us down, waving the white customs forms. We ignored these guys
and drove all the way to the border. Don't worry about going to far, they
will stop you. Once you stop there will be other guys offering to help
you with the paperwork. If you do accept somebody's help, you should tip
them one or two Euros not more. But the procedure is fairly straightforward
so you will manage on your own.
|Point of Exit||Tangier|
|How it went||What ever you do, show up early and bring a lot of patience,
you will have to queue a lot. First you have to queue at the ticket booth
for the ferry, so exchange your ticket for a boarding card. Unfortunately
you need the boarding card to do the rest of the paperwork so there is not
much hope in speeding the process up by splitting up.
Next you have to go to the Customs Office to get an exit stamp in your passport. Then you can drive out of the waiting area towards the ferry. At some point you will get stopped and somebody will want the green vehicle form which also has to get stamped. That's it you are free to board.
No fees of any kind were charged at the border. Not for entering and not for exiting.
