8000 applications for passports in Malta in June 2022 alone

8000 applications for passports in Malta in June 2022 alone

Two years of COVID-19 pandemic lockdown drove a substantial amount of people in Malta to apply for their passport and seek time away abroad. 

This saw up to 8000 applications for passports being inputted in June alone, which is double the number when compared to the same period of last year. Identity Malta was forced to increase its services by increasing time slots and upgrading online services. 

Before the pandemic, Identity Malta used to receive around 2,000 and 3,000 applications for passports in June. Colonel Mark Mallia explained to TVM that: 

‘The ground floor of the Public Registry was relegated solely to passport services. New stations were opened, as well as a new entry in Aldo Moro, and an online service was introduced to facilitate applications from the commodity of one’s home.’ 

Office times were also extended to six in the evening from Monday to Friday, with times extended to Sunday as well. 

Many people are opting for holidays abroad, as both tourism and airport traffic also picks up pace towards pre-pandemic levels. Malta’s airport regained 84% of pre-pandemic traffic in June, meaning around 603,532 passengers travelled through the Malta International Airport.
