The aim of this study was to explain the determinants of Moroccan migrants return to their home country. We will use for it a very original database of migrants from Morocco. Using a probit model, our results show that some migrants have a higher propensity to return back to their home country if they are young men, have modest incomes (between 1500 and 2000 €) and level of educational attainment (less than the baccalaureate level), send money regularly to their family living in Morocco and having accumulated money in the host country from previous investment in the home country; or student.
