Are you ready to travel? With the new app from the Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs you will be.
The travel app ”UM Rejseklar” (=ready to go) will make you feel safer traveling everywhere. The app, which is in Danish, will provide you with:
• contact information to the Danish Embassies and Consulates worldwide
• travel advices
• travel directions to the Embassy or Consulate nearest to your current location
• easy access to “Dansker-listen” (=the list of Danes) This list is made to let the Ministry of Foreign Affairs contact Danes abroad in emergency situations
• Push-messages about important news or warnings in the country where you are travelling.
The app was released 21 September 2015 and can be downloaded to both smartphones and tablets and on iOS, Android and Windows devices. The content of the app is continuously being updated to keep up with developments around the World.
You have to accept Location Services to get the full benefit of the app. It is a common problem to travel apps that people tend to switch off their location on their mobile devices, and that way the different apps are less useful.
”UM Rejseklar” has been under production for a long time to make it work perfectly. The Danish Embassy in Thailand has been one of the testers of the new app – and has endorsed it.
The app will ensure that you as a Danish citizen can reach help 24 hours a day. If you call your local Danish embassy outside office hours you can request your call to be diverted to The Global Control Centre.
