New app for Indonesian travellers

Company brief

The Indonesian Government has developed a new travel app for its citizens who are planning to travel overseas or are currently living abroad.

‘Safe Travel’, developed by the Foreign Ministry, is designed to cater for several requirements, including those moving abroad to travel or work. The app provides information on time differences, security, laws, local customs, immigration requirements and the location of houses of worship. Travel warnings will also be sent to users’ devices.

Additionally, the app gives Indonesian travellers and migrants a direct link to emergency services. Users will be able to send their location, record a video and contact the nearest Indonesian Embassy, Indonesian Consulate General or Indonesian Consulate.

The app was created by Yogyakarta-based IT company PT Gamatechno Indonesia.
