MIA Malta International Airport

Arrivals to Malta International Airport (MIA) are being called on to cooperate with local health and airport authorities by presenting and submitting the required entry documents digitally “whenever possible”.

The health authorities’ decision to recognise digital versions of documents required for entry into Malta was welcomed by MIA, which said however that it “still expects to see several passengers arriving in Malta with missing or paper-based documents, necessitating manual verification by public health representatives”.

MIA’s appeals comes as air travel is characterised by hours-long delays to verify vaccine certifications.

Calling local health authorities’ acceptance of the UK digital vaccine certificate and the Malta digital Passenger Locator Form (dPLF), which is part of a wider EU system, “an important step in the right direction which is expected to contribute to an improved experience for arriving guests”, MIA made it clear that the system’s smooth operation depends on travellers’ cooperation.

It reminded prospective visitors that both departing and arriving passengers travelling through Malta International Airport that information on country-specific travel requirements as well as other COVID-related updates may be found on the its COVID-19 page.
