Guest workers from Morocco arrived in the Netherlands at the end of the 1960s. Most of them first migrated from the countryside of Morocco to its bigger cities, before then migrating to Europe. At first, the guest workers went without their family, but family reunification took place for many, a few years later. Other guest workers found a wife in Morocco and then brought her over. Many migrated Moroccans, as well as their families, still live in the Netherlands. The pull factors of a better economy, job opportunities and facilities attracted these economic migrants away from their homes. Where they used to live, push factors triggered them to leave.
