The Online service which can now be accessed through the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Website has the ability to take online applications, pay online for renewal of E-Passports and send an electronic message that the Passport is ready for collection. In essence the user will only have to physically attend the Passport Office to collect the renewed passport. This process will cut down on the long lines experienced at the Passport Office.  (BIS Photos/Derek Smith)
