Before you plan a trip to Western Sahara, you should find out whether you require a visa. While Morocco controls the bulk of Western Sahara, the Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic controls one section, which is normally off-limits to outsiders.

Because Morocco controls the majority of Western Sahara, you should look at Morocco's via policy. Citizens of 69 nations, according to the guidelines, may enter Western Sahara and remain for up to 90 days with just a valid passport. There are a few exceptions: inhabitants of Hong Kong and Singapore may only stay in Western Sahara for 30 days, and nationals of the Republic of Congo, Guinea, and Mali must must get an Electronic Travel Authorization (ETA) from November 1, 2018. Aside from that, regular visa regulations apply.

If your place of origin is not included among the 69 visa-exempt nations, your sole choice is to apply for a visa at the closest Moroccan diplomatic mission or embassy. The procedure is rather simple. You should contact the embassy/diplomatic mission first to inquire about the criteria, then assemble everything you need to submit your application in person.

It is important to note that you must always have your passport with you while traveling in Western Sahara. Your passport will be examined at various checkpoints. You will not be given a stamp or anything of the type since it is only a security precaution. Nobody can enter Western Sahara unless they have a valid passport.

11. Employer Of Record service terms

Employment contracts

In Morocco, it is legally obligatory to have a written employment contract in the local language that specifies out the conditions of the employee's remuneration, benefits, and termination requirements. In Morocco, an offer letter and employment contract should always include the salary and any compensation amounts in Moroccan dirams rather than foreign money.

Minimum assignment length

In Morocco, there are three forms of employment contracts: fixed term, indefinite duration, and job completion. Definite-term contracts have an expiry date of 12 months (one year) and may only be renewed once, but indefinite-term contracts do not have an end date. If an employee continues to work for the company after the fixed-term contract expires, the fixed-term contract immediately becomes an indefinite-term contract.

For indefinite-term contracts, the probation period for managers cannot exceed three months, a month and a half for office staff, and 15 days for on-site laborers. The trial period for definite-term contracts of less than six months is one day every week, and it is 30 days for contracts of more than six months. The probation term may only be extended once.

The employer is needed to obtain and renew an employment card for the employee from the Labour office on a yearly basis. When employing more over 50 people, they must additionally set up an internal medical first aid center staffed by a doctor.

In Morocco, 26 days or 191 hours of labour is considered one complete month of employment.
