3 Best Prepaid SIM Cards in Morocco: Buying Guide


Morocco – also known as Al Maghreb, is mostly famous for the Sahara Desert. It is also, together with Algeria, the country with the largest Berber community.

The country is also known for various stunning Mosques, such as the Hassan II Mosque, its mint tea, and architecture.

And if you are a good swimmer, you can even swim from Tarifa (Spain) to Eddalya (Morocco), but I would not recommend trying (it would be a 10 km swim – good luck).

Thrilling nightlife, fabulous beaches, and incredible deserts, there is a lot to do and see in Morocco. And you probably want to share your experiences online.

Before doing so, be aware that international roaming can be expensive. You are better off using local SIM cards, like a Moroccan one, to enjoy local rates – almost always cheaper than international roaming.

But how cheap are SIM cards in Morocco?

You can get a Moroccan SIM card for as low as 20 MAD (2.25 USD) in Maroc Telecom's, Orange's, or Inwi's official stores, but they can also be bought from other stores like tobacco stores. 1 GB valid for 7 days can be bought for as little as 10 MAD (1.15 USD).

If you have been to Northern Africa before, you know that mobile data is cheap. If you have not been to this region or did not know about this yet – now you know.

As always, there are quite some things to know before getting a Moroccan SIM card.

In this guide, I will go over everything you need to know about buying a SIM card in Morocco. Let's go.

Buying a SIM Card in Morocco Guide (logos of Maroc Telecom, Orange & Inwi)

Can You Buy a SIM Card in Morocco?

Anyone living or visiting Morocco can buy a Moroccan SIM card without restrictions.

You do need to be aware that you have to go through a SIM card registration procedure. Additionally, you need a phone that supports the frequencies used in the country (preferably all of them to have the most optimal experience while in Morocco). Finally, you need to have a SIM-lock-free (unlocked) phone to use local SIM cards.

Where Can You Buy a SIM Card in Morocco?

You can get a Moroccan SIM card in Maroc Telecom's, Orange's, and Inwi's official stores. You can also get them from third-party resellers, such as tobacco stores. In addition, SIM cards can be obtained at several international airports, including Casablanca-Mohammed V International Airport.

You can buy a SIM card at the following International Airports:

  • Casablanca-Mohammed V International Airport (Aéroport international Mohammed V/مطار محمد الخامس الدولي)
  • Marrakesh Menara Airport (Aéroport Marrakech Ménara/مطار مراكش المنارة)
  • Agadir – Al Massira Airport (Aéroport Al Massira/مطار المسيرة)

Note: Orange Morocco often hands out SIM cards for free at international airports or touristy areas.

You can expect to pay the following for a Morocco SIM card:

  • Maroc Telecom: 30 MAD
  • Orange Morocco: 30 MAD
  • Inwi: 20 MAD

Can You Use Your Phone in Morocco?

Morocco uses GSM technology for mobile communications. CDMA phones will not work in Morocco. However, there is a 99% chance that your phone supports GSM.

Traditional European frequencies are used in Morocco, which are mostly used in ITU Regions 1 & 3 (Africa, Asia (including the Middle East), Europe & Oceania).

The Americas (North-, Central– & South America + the Caribbean – ITU Region 2) use American Frequencies, which differ from the European ones.

ITU Regions Map

If you bought your phone in Africa, Asia, Europe, or Oceania (ITU regions 1 & 3), you should not experience any issues with using your phone in Morocco.

If you purchased your phone in the Americas (ITU Region 2) and have a low/medium-end device (without Tri-Band or Quad-Band) support, then there is a possibility you cannot use your phone when in Morocco or can only on 2G.

If you have a medium/high-end device with Tri-Band or Quad-Band support, you can use your phone in Morocco (to some extent) – even on 4G/LTE.

Mobile Operators, Networks & Frequencies in Morocco

Morocco has three mobile network operators:

  • Maroc Telecom
  • Orange Morocco
  • Inwi

The following frequencies are used in Morocco:

  • 2G: 900 MHz
  • 3G: 900 MHz & 2100 MHz
  • 4G/LTE: 800 MHz (Band 20), 1800 MHz (Band 3) & 2600 MHz (Band 7)

You can learn more about frequencies in the video below.

To check whether your phone will work in Morocco, check out this pageOpens in a new tab. by Will My Phone Work (may be outdated or inaccurate at times).

Again, make sure your phone is unlocked. Otherwise, you will not be able to use any SIM card except the one from your home operator (meaning you have to roam internationally or buy another unlocked phone that does support the frequencies listed above).

If you want to learn how international roaming works, this guide explains it in-depth. If you wonder why it is often so expensive to roam, this article explains the hidden reason they do not want you to know.

A Note About Coverage in the Western Sahara

Flag of Western Sahara Flag

Morocco claims the territory of the Western Sahara. However, it is regarded as a disputed territory by some. Nevertheless, the Moroccan operators do provide coverage in the Western Sahara.

However, as the Western Sahara is sparsely populated, mobile coverage is sparse too.

The larger cities like Laayoune, Dakhla & Paayoune Plage have good coverage. Some smaller cities, towns, and villages may have coverage, but it may be at 3G or 2G. Speeds will be much slower in the Western Sahara than in mainland Morocco.

5G NR in Morocco

5G NR is not available in Morocco as of 2021, and the Moroccan government has not made any indications of when they will auction 5G licenses. However, both Maroc TelecomOpens in a new tab. and InwiOpens in a new tab. held 5G trials in the past.

Best SIM Card in Morocco

If you want to buy the best SIM card in Morocco, I recommend going with Maroc Telecom or Inwi. Maroc Telecom has the best coverage and the fastest speeds. Inwi has great coverage and fast speeds too, but they are the cheapest option in Morocco.

SIM Card Registration in Morocco

SIM card registration, with the use of your passport information, is mandatory in Morocco. This will be done at the point of sale. Moreover, photos of you will be taken as part of the registration process.

Morocco Speeds, Internet Prices & Insights

Flag of Morocco

Northern Africa is the region with the lowest mobile data rates in the world. And mobile internet has become cheaper and better over the year.

So how expensive is mobile data in Morocco?

The average price for 1 GB of data in Morocco is 0.88 USD, far below the African average of 5.80 USD. The world average is 4.07 USD.

When looking at just Northern Africa, using Cable.co.uk's definition, the average cost of 1 GB of data is 1.53 USD – that is incredibly low!

If we exclude Mauritania because it is such an outlier, the average in the region is 0.86 USD.

When looking at Africa as a whole, Morocco is doing exceptionally well. In fact, Morocco is one of the 53 countries where the average cost of 1 GB of data is less than 1 USD.

That is enough about costs. What about speeds? How fast is mobile data in Morocco?

Morocco's average mobile download speed is around 39 Mbps, making it the country with the 3rd fastest mobile download speed in Africa, behind South Africa and Mali.

Currently, there is no African country that has an average mobile download speed than the global average. However, Morocco is doing an excellent job in terms of speed.

Moreover, the 4G coverage experience is impressive too, especially for a country with many deserts.

Currency in Morocco

200 Moroccan Dirham Bank Note
© Bank Al-Maghrib/Bank of Morocco

Morocco uses the Morrocan Dirham with the symbol MAD (which will be used throughout this article). However, prices in Morocco are listed in DH. For example, 25 MAD = 25 Dh. For reference, below are some exchange rates between MAD and USD (US Dollars – Rounded):

  • 1 MAD = 0.10 USD
  • 10 MAD = 1.10 USD
  • 100 MAD = 11.30 USD
  • 1000 MAD = 113.20 USD

For up-to-date MAD:USD exchange rates, search MAD to USD on Google, or replace USD with the currency you use.

If your credit/debit card charges you foreign exchange fees, get yourself a Wise Borderless Account and Debit Card. Their fees are MUCH lower than banks, and credit card companies charge you (and Wise is transparent about their fees, unlike banks). I have saved literal THOUSANDS of Euros, my main currency, when using Wise abroad when traveling compared to my debit and credit cards. Open a Wise account FREE!

Other Ways to Stay Connected When Traveling in Morocco

Getting a Moroccan SIM card is the best way to stay connected in the country.

However, for some, getting local SIM cards is not an option. For example, if you have a SIM-locked device.

Luckily, there are other ways to get online when in Morocco.

However, these methods may be more expensive than getting a SIM card from the local operators.

International Roaming

International roaming is the most convenient way to stay connected when traveling in other countries because you do not have to buy a new SIM card, have to deal with SIM card registration regulations, nor have multiple phone numbers to deal with.

However, international roaming has proven to be expensive in many cases, especially compared to buying local SIM cards. That is why many travelers are not fond of international roaming.

International roaming has its pros and cons. However, it is important to know how it works. This in-depth guide explains it all.

Find out whether your mobile operator has attractive roaming rates for Morocco here.

Using an International SIM Card or Travel SIM Card

International SIM cards are SIM cards made for the traveler in mind. Using them is often cheaper than international roaming. However, they are almost always more expensive than using a local SIM card.

There are many other advantages and disadvantages of getting international SIM cards, which you can learn about here.

Using a Mobile Hotspot (Pocket WIFI)

Mobile hotspots, or pocket WIFI, are small devices that connect to the local operators of the country you are visiting. Mobile hotspots are ideal for families or those traveling in a large group, as they allow you to connect multiple devices to one hotspot without the need of each traveler having to buy a SIM card.

You can either buy a mobile hotspot or rent one.

Using Free WIFI Networks
