Qatar's Ministry of Foreign Affairs Release Travel App
With people flying all over the globe, Qatar’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs has launched an app that can help citizens who run in to emergencies when abroad. This includes features for nationals and expats including a handy pre-travel registration system that records a user’s key details and logs these with the ministry and in case of emergencies, a "request assistance" option allows you to call for help, sending an alert to the ministry with your location.
Users of the app can also check the status of documents being attested and access a list of visa requirements for Qataris travelling abroad and non-Qataris planning a visit here. The app is fully equipped with currency exchange, weather forecasts, a list of prayer times and ministry news updates.
The app can be downloaded on iOS, Android, Blackberry and Windows mobile devices.
