No 'culture clash' for an expatriate in Morocco

A potential expatriate may be put off by the complexity of buying property in Morocco but this not the case.

An expert has stated that the laws of the country’s main faith, Islam, do not make it any more intricate to become an expatriate in Morocco.

In recent years, there has been a strong interest in the north-African country, with a buoyant tourism industry adding to economic and employment growth in the region.

Alisdair Luxmoore, a director at, said: "I’ve bought property in various places around the world and Morocco has its own complications – there is a very, very high level of bureaucracy – but I don’t think that’s anything to do with the majority religion… I would still say it’s a very interesting country to invest in."

Research conducted by the World Travel & Tourism Council revealed that in 2008 Morocco’s travel and tourism generated £7,118 million of economic activity (GDP).

This includes £4,135 million of direct industry GDP, equivalent to 11 per cent of total GDP, and 1,035 million jobs, representing 9.6 per cent of total employment.
