Western Sahara to Europe

I am 36 and going to Western Sahara for the first time. There I will stay for a year or so. I will be moving out of Sahara to Europe for 7-10 days after every 2-3 Months. Please advice me some plans for these recreational visits for selected places and should be cheap. I would be alone, if someone has any such plan please let me know, we can have a company, I enjoy company.

You've precious few options. South into the dust of Mauretania, or the long drag up to Spain and the EU.

You should note that the country is called Morocco, not the 'Western Sahara', which exists only in a few politicians imaginations.

You'll find northern Morocco easier to get to, cheaper, and potentially more interesting than the easy to reach European destinations.

If you are leaving to renew your visa, you might be better off applying for residency; it's not hard to get.

Mr. Markwillenbrock, I am indeed grateful that you took a time to reply my query. In fact I am not renewing my visa rather going for the first time, even out of my country for the first time. Thats why little excited and a little fear of unseen. Any how I will keep your advice and wait for more. Thanks

Well, of all the countries in the United Nations, the only one that actually acknowledges Western Sahara to be part of Morocco is.... Morocco. The legal status according to the UN is a Non-Self-Governing Territory.

Nevertheless, as far as Morocco is concerned, it controls Western Sahara and regards it as a region of Morocco. As with other regions, you will not be allowed to stay for more than three months at a time, so you will need to exit the country (Morocco/Western Sahara) either heading south to Mauritania or north to Spain. Depending on which side of the bed the border officials go out of that morning, you might be allowed back the same day with a fresh three month entry entitlement, or you might have to stay out for several days.

You've not filled in your profile so I don't know whether you will need a visa or whether you are from a country that doesn't need visas.

Mauritania isn't much fun, not much to do. Travelling all the way to Spain (or at least Ceuta) is a pain.
