The Department’s country advisories are based on reports from Irish Embassies, EU and international parties. Púca had to merge these and develop an app with up-to-date and accurate information to ensure users get the latest security updates for their chosen location.
Púca combined their push notifications with the app to allow Irish travellers the option to receive alerts on changes for specific countries of their choosing. While also providing general advice based on topics, such as; LGBT travellers, death abroad, children’s issues, victim of crime abroad etc.
The app succeeded in providing offline travel advice, mapping of Irish Embassies, and consular information on 200 countries. A catalogue of information such as security, local laws, entry requirements, health and emergency contacts were all included. Enhancing Irish safety and support while abroad.
