Estonians Can Get Travel Info and Register Travels Through Foreign Ministry’s New Mobile App
The Foreign Ministry’s new mobile application “Reisi targalt” (“Travel Smart”) provides travel advisories for different countries and allows the user to register his or her own travels using a smartphone or tablet.
The “Travel Smart” app will be helpful to Estonian travellers both while planning a trip and while abroad. The app allows the user to receive travel advisories and register his or her own trip, which allows the Foreign Ministry to know when and where the user is travelling. In addition, the app also includes a travel tips section with practical advice, such as what to do if an accident occurs or a passport gets lost. The contact information for all of Estonia’s foreign representations is listed in the contacts section.
The app, which is in Estonian, is suitable for smartphones running the Android or iOS platform. It can be downloaded from the App Store and Google Playlist.
The Foreign Ministry’s travel information can also be found on its website (http://www.vm.ee/?q=en/node/53... and on Facebook. Employees of the Foreign Ministry’s consular department share travel information and answer consular questions on the Foreign Ministry’s Web Consul page (www.facebook.com/veebikonsul).... The Web Consul page also shares tips and information in the event of a crisis situation.
