Less than 24 hours after its launch, ‘MEAIndia’ app has topped the charts of Apple Store. The application, launched by the Ministry of External Affairs, was leading in the free category of the Apple Store.

If you have an android or iOS platforms phone, then you can track your passport application with its help. In the next couple of months, people will be able to even apply for passport through this app which is free. 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, thanks to ‘MEAIndia’ app.

One-stop shop

The MEA envisages the application to 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 you are abroad, to booking yourself for the Kailash Manasarovar Yatra, everything is now available on your fingertips.

The MEA is the first government department to have a mobile app for smart phone 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 quiz and win Rs. 1,000 e-vouchers for buying books.
