You want to get to know a completely different place from what you are used to? Have you always wanted to see all the goods sold in Moroccan market places or ride through the desert on camel-back? Then our language school in Rabat is just the right place for you.
Rabat lies within its ocher colored walls and is surrounded by the intensive blue tones of the ocean below and the sky above. Alike Fès, Meknès and Marrakesh, Rabat is one of the royal towns of Morocco that you can visit during your Gap Year or sabbatical language trip with Sprachcaffe. The country's capital offers a wide variety of cultural treasures that are waiting to be discovered.
From the Atlas mountains, the hot desert sand or the fertile areas within the cork oak forest, Morocco offers everything you could want to see to make your language travels and unforgettable experience.
Depending on which kind of citizenship you own you may not immediately need a stay permit. Should you decide to go on a Gap Year or sabbatical trip for a longer period of time you will need to obtain a stay permit that will remain valid for the entire length of your planned stay. In order to claim your stay permit on time you will need to apply for it at the local foreigner's police station within 21 days after having reached your destination. In order to complete your application you will need proof of finances and a certified reason for why a longer stay in the country will be required, among other documents. You can receive a certificate of language course student status form our school in Rabat. You can get more information about your stay permit application at the Moroccan embassy.
The local currency is called Dirham. There is a limit on how much money you are allowed to take into and out of the country and according to the website of the federal foreign agency this amount is roughly 1 thousand Durham. Due to the fact that the laws on the amount of money change frequently, we recommend that you consult the website of Moroccan customs for updates and further information.
It is also recommendable that you look your best and are dressed formally when beginning your trip as it is not uncommon for unkempt people to be denied entry into the country. Please note that some rules and regulations in Morocco may differ greatly from the those in your country, which is why it would be very beneficial to familiarize yourself with the laws and rules of the country before you plan your journey. Details and further information about these regulations can be found online and on the website of the federal foreign agency.
The federal foreign office recommends that people obtain a travel health insurance that includes the service of transporting you back to a different country for hospitalization before they begin their travels with the aim to stay in Morocco for longer periods of time.
