Schengen Medical Certificate

DH Circular No. 101/07

As Malta is now a signatory Party to the Schengen Convention, the Schengen principles of free circulation of people will hold for Maltese travellers travelling from one Schengen State to another. The Schengen Convention abolishes the checks at internal borders of the signatory states and creates a single external frontier.

This freedom of movement without being submitted to checks at internal borders is accompanied by compensatory measures, namely an improved coordination between the police, customs and the judiciary. As part of this improved coordination, residents in Malta who travel to another Schengen State and, who, during this period require to take narcotic drugs and/or psychotropic substances for medical treatment, are required to keep in possession a specific medical certificate. Sections A, B and C of the medical certificate are to be clearly and wholly filled in by the medical doctor.

Subsequently the patient is to be instructed to proceed to the Drug Control Unit at 3B Old Mint Street, Valletta for final verification and authentication, which will fill in Section D of the medical certificate.

A separate certificate is required for each narcotic drug/ psychotropic substance prescribed.

The articles of the Schengen Convention will be implemented by the following countries as follows:

As from EU Countries Non-EU Countries
