Automatic border control gates for Dublin Airport

New automatic border control gates are to be installed at Dublin Airport over the coming months, in an effort to increase security and speed up immigration queues.

The so-called 'e-Gates' will provide automated passport validation and security checks on passengers.

They work by using advanced facial recognition technology and electronically checking the authenticity of biometric passports.

Initially, 20 e-Gates willbe installed at Dublin Airport and will be fully operational before the end of the year.

Minister for Justice Charlie Flanagansaid the introduction of the e-Gates will greatly enhance immigration controls and border security, while at the same time providing an improved passenger experience through the immigration process.

During the first phase of the project, Irish and other EU travellers over 18 with e-Passports and holders of the Irish Passport Card will be able to use the e-Gates.
