The Majorana phase boundaries in planar 2D hybrid (semiconductor-superconductor) nanowires are modified by orbital effects due to off plane magnetic components. We show that Majorana zero modes survive sizable vertical field tiltings, uncovering a remarkable phase diagram. Analytical expressions of the phase boundaries are given for the strong orbital limit. These phase boundaries can be fulfilled with attainable setups, such as an InAs nanowire of 150nm in transverse width.
