Using the app, Chinese citizens can apply for a travel permit for returning home with one click online after losing their passport abroad, and retirees residing abroad can complete the pension qualification certification.
Passports and other services will be carried out through online video meetings. Applicants can also use mobile payment and online payment when they apply for a permit at the embassy or consulate abroad through the app, according to China News Agency.
