There can be few people out there who haven’t found themselves in difficulty while travelling at one time or other. What should you do if you lose your passport while on holiday? Is your destination safe? Whom can you contact in case of an accident? These questions and many more can crop up before or during the trip. 

The Swiss go on 16 million trips abroad (with at least one overnight stay) every year. In addition, around 760,000 Swiss nationals live in a country outside Switzerland.  

Member of the Federal Council Ignazio Cassis presents the EDA app 

Stephan Klaus and Michael Schranz from Apps with love looked on as Federal Council member Ignazio Cassis, Chairman of the Federal Department for Foreign Affairs EDA, together with Johannes Matyassy, Director of the Consular Directorate of the EDA, tested the “Travel Admin” app live for his trip to the United States in the context of an official presentation. 

 “Supporting our citizens who are travelling or living abroad is a very important task for the EDA and one that I feel strongly about. We want to provide them with reliable and easily accessible services using the latest technological possibilities”, said Ignazio Cassis before boarding his plane to the US. “The new app is an excellent solution for creating contact between Swiss citizens and the EDA and the Confederation. They can be proud of their country”, he added. 

The “Travel Admin” app was developed to make it easier for Swiss citizens to prepare for a trip abroad and for them to be contacted in the case of crisis or disaster.

Her eye for space and form turns every project into a delectable piece of eye candy. She’s a master of that old art that has all but disappeared – drawing by hand with an antiquated piece of equipment, the so-called pencil. This tool is moved over the paper and lines appear... It’s crazy!

In Michael, superhuman marketing and business know-how are tightly crammed into one person. Two green thumbs and a previous life as a builder make him survivor of the fittest. But careful: he’s not only the master of the art of speed pitching and public speaking but also of the filibuster.
