As a country of destination, transit, and departure, migration flows in Morocco are internal, cross-border, and cross-regional. According to the Department of Economic and Social A…airs, in 2020, there were around 103,000 international migrants in Morocco, including irregular and regular migrants, refugees, and asylum seekers. To ensure that migration is properly managed, Morocco is actively involved at international and national levels through governance frameworks and mechanisms, including the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, the Global Compact for Safe, Orderly, and Regular Migration, the National Strategy for Immigration and Asylum (SNIA), the National Strategy for Moroccans living abroad and the Moroccan Development Model.

Morocco is one of the champion countries for the implementation of the 23 objectives of the Global Compact, notably in the promotion and sharing of best practices in the framework of South-South cooperation, the promotion of regular migration channels, the strengthening of international cooperation and global partnerships for safe, orderly, and regular migration.

At the national level, to ensure that migration contributes to development efforts, Morocco has put in place the National Strategy for Immigration and Asylum (SNIA), which includes 11 sectoral and cross-cutting action programs covering education, health, shelter, social protection, employment, human trafficking, international cooperation, and governance.
