Foreign Affairs Minister Charlie Flanagan this morning launched TravelWise, a new free smartphone travel app available for download on iOS and Android.

Speaking at the launch, Minister Flanagan said:

I would urge all Irish people travelling abroad to download and use the App. The app has user-friendly travel advice and consular information for 200 countries worldwide.   

All fans heading to Euro 2016 in France can download the App and “favourite” France, to get France-related security updates from my Department direct to their phone. Mothers and fathers back in Ireland can do the same.

This new smartphone app underlines the Government’s commitment to the expanded provision of public services online.  This is an Irish-led and Irish-designed project that combines cutting edge technology and security features with ground-breaking levels of user-friendliness and flexibility.
