MEAIndia App

New Delhi : Less than 24 hours after its launch, the 'MEAIndia' app has topped the charts of Apple Store. The application, launched by the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA), is leading in the free category of the Apple Store.

If one has an android or iOS platform phone, then they can track their passport application with its help. In the next couple of months, people will be able to even apply for a passport through this free app.

Thanks to the app, for the first time in the world, a country's Foreign Ministry has been able to integrate and consolidate its entire digital presence in one's hand.

The MEA envisages the application be a "one-stop shop" for you.

From getting updates from all the 124 Indian missions in the world, to getting information for consular access in case one is abroad, to making a booking for the Kailash Manasarovar Yatra, everything is now available at one's fingertips.

The MEA is the first government department to have a mobile app for smartphone users.

It will provide details of all citizen-centric services of the MEA like passport, visa details for those travelling to India and Haj related details among others.

Besides providing vast information on India's foreign policies and activities, one can even take part in quizzes and win 1000 e-vouchers for buying books.
