Simultaneously, 1,391 individuals from third countries, irregularly residing in Malta, were repatriated or relocated to authorized countries. Minister Camilleri emphasized ongoing initiatives to reform the irregular immigration system, involving legislative changes and systematic improvements at both local and international levels.

Furthermore, the establishment of the Returns Unit within the Ministry for Home Affairs was highlighted, focusing on facilitating the return of individuals to their home countries if they do not require protection in Malta. 

The minister underscored the government’s commitment to managing irregular immigration without adverse impacts on surrounding communities, pointing to extensive work in immigrant centres.

Additionally, the response addressed changes made to establish a proper protection system in Malta. Legislative amendments, investments in the asylum process, and a reduction in pending applications were outlined as key elements in this endeavour.
