Belgium: Immigrants Retiring in Morocco to Benefit From Health Insurance

Thanks to a Belgian-Moroccan agreement that was signed last year, Moroccans and Belgians of Moroccan origins can still enjoy their health benefits from the Belgian social security upon arrival in Morocco either for retirement or to start a new career. Moroccans who had initially feared retiring in Morocco because of the lack of social protection and health coverage can now change their opinion.

The agreement will encourage more Moroccans living in Belgium to return home and invest in the country. The agreement will also see the Belgian state reimbursing Moroccans with less expensive health benefits in comparison to what it would normally pay if they still live in Belgium.

As a growing share of the population becomes eligible for state-sponsored health care, authorities will have to contend with greater pressure on the supply of medical services and facilities. The government plans to shoulder the full cost of coverage for public university students, with Dh110m (€10.1m) earmarked for an estimated 260,000 students in the first year alone.

Merzouga: a Destination of Health and Sights

It has become a favorite destination for enthusiasts and lovers of golden sand as well as for those who seek therapy for certain illnesses. While some seek the oasis’ therapeutic sand, others seek to discover lifestyle of the remaining nomadic tribes in the region.
