The settlement of Moroccan emigrants abroad dates back a long time, its beginnings coincided with the colonial settlement in Morocco. It has increased over the years and reached its peak in the last two decades, particularly towards the countries of Western Europe. Thus, this migratory phenomenon has diversified to generate different transformations in the migration process and in the demographic structure of the migrants, their destinations, and their types of integration and social advancement in the host countries. Its volume now exceeds five million individuals. Currently, the Moroccan immigrants are distributed differently in almost 100 countries in the world.
