"Sinn Féin Councillor Maire Cairns has welcomed the new online service now available to adult citizens over 18 who already have a passport.

"This new and exciting service brings considerable benefits in terms of turnaround times, convenience and security.

"The service has a target turnaround time of 10 working days.

"Applicants will have the choice of taking their own photos or they may attend one of 150 digital 'Photo Me' booths.

"This will avoid the need for witnessing of forms and the printing of photographs.
