MIA Gets Automated Border Control Gates


Just in time before Malta re-opens its borders to inbound tourists, our airport has got a snazzy new upgrade with automated border control gates! It’s another step in ensuring Malta keeps in touch with the latest standards, especially if the country is to be at the forefront of the “new” tourism industry.

€900,000 investment

European funds parliamentary secretary Stefan Zrinzo Azzopardi revealed that the European Union contributed a €700,000 investment, with the police adding another €200,000 in the gate upgrade.

Attending the launch, Home Affairs Minister Byron Camilleri said: “These gates will strengthen our country’s borders, through increased efficiency and more modern equipment”. Police commissioner Angelo Gafà concurred, stating that the gates would help the police provide a more efficient, effective and secure service.
