Parcel delivery to Malta
One of the most densely populated islands in the Mediterranean, Malta is a member of the EU. Most declarations in the EU are filed electronically. This expedites the formalized process of customs inspection significantly. Before the goods have arrived Customs has already started to review the manifest to determine each shipments contents. Items that require additional inspection are placed aside and the rest are forwarded to the national mail service for delivery. The parcels are scanned at key points throughout the process. Customs has the right to remove any parcel from circulation to examine its contents.
