Border Inspection Post

​The Veterinary Border Inspection Posts ( BIP) are a key factor to ensure that the live animals and products of animal origin entering to the European Union are safe and meeting the specific import conditions laid down in the Community legislation.

The imported live animals and products of animal origin present the highest level of risks as they can transmit serious human and animal diseases. Therefore it is necessary to subject them to specific controls at their point of entry, so called Veterinary Border Inspection Posts (BIPs).

A consignment of live animals or product of animal origin can only enter into the EU, if it has satisfactorily undergone the specific checks and a Common Veterinary Entry Document (CVED) is issued.

Veterinary Checks on Live Animals and on Products of Animal Origin originating from Third Countries imported into Malta are carried out in the following approved BIPs: 

  • Marsaxlokk: Freeport Border Inspection Post
  • MIA Luqa: Airport Border Inspection Post
  • Zammit-Dock: Valletta Border Inspection Post
