FYI, it's also a visa-free destination for Philippine passport holders.

Out of all the visa-free destinations for Philippine passport holders, this country is the next one you should be preparing for! Morocco is as close to a fairytale world as you could possibly get, and it looks like flying there will be much easier in the near future. Direct flights between the Philippines and Morocco will soon be possible thanks to a deal between the Department of Transportation and the North African country.

Full traffic rights for both passenger and cargo have been approved by both countries through a Memorandum of Understanding, which means that daily flights between the two nations are now possible. This is just an initial step while the Department of Transportation (DOTr) finalizes an Air Services Agreement with the Kingdom of Morocco.

Once the discussions are finalized, there will be an "increase in tourism figures and people-to-people exchanges between the two countries" as well as a boost in "economic and social relations," said the DOTr in a statement. A Philippine embassy in Morocco is also set to be established in 2020.
