Indian expats in UAE to get a new app for Consular Services

In this time and age of Mobile apps, every other service has taken the smart phone application route. The Indian Consulate in Dubai had launched a mobile app named "CGI Dubai" last year during the 146th birth anniversary of the Father of the Nation, Mahatma Gandhi, on October 2.

Now, the Indian expats in Dubai and Northern Emirates will be able to fix appointments with consular officials through a revamped mobile app.

The app is set to be unveiled on the sidelines of 67th Indian Republic Day celebrations.

It will now have facilities for taking appointments with the consulate officials for visa or passport services.

The SOS feature would remain as a highlight through which workers in distress can seek help through a free call. The call will connect any Indian in distress to the 24x7 helpline of the Indian Workers Resource Centre that will address the issue.

The new version will have geo-tagging facility and the beta version will be made available by the Indian Republic Day.
