Many of the immigrants are believed to be from Somalia.
A group of 103 asylum seekers landed in Malta on Monday, compounding the Mediterranean island’s migration problems.
A number of the migrants were taken to hospital for treatment shortly after landing in the south of the island, local media reported.
Two babies were among the migrants, believed to be Somalis who fled Libya some days ago.
Sunday’s arrival comes hours after 174 migrants made their way to the Italian island of Lampedusa.
Three female migrants died during the voyage.
