Tourism Malaysia launches MYTA app for tourists

Tourism Malaysia has announced the launch of My Tourist
Assist TM (MyTA) mobile app to support safe travel for tourists in the country. The app is
developed by UST Global, a leading digital technology services company, and managed by
Jana Tiga Holdings Sdn Bhd, a company working with large Malaysian conglomerates.
Malaysia enjoys hosting millions of tourists every year and is one of the most visited countries
in the world. My Tourist Assist™ is an e-Government service under
Tourism Malaysia. Tourism Malaysia recognises the importance of
safety for tourists in Malaysia, especially in the event of natural
disasters in the region. The app is available for download on Google
Play and App Store.

profile and an Emergency Contact. Key features of the app include
‘UrSafe’ tab with SOS button for sending alert to their near kin in
the event of emergency and security services to be immediately
alerted. The app also lists various ‘Essential Services’ like Police
Stations, Hospitals, Pharmacy, ATMs, Embassy, Train Stations and
Petrol Pumps. Tourists can select the service they are looking for
and open its location on map to reach there. The app is easy-to- use
and highly recommended by the Tourism Malaysia. More features
will be added in the coming days.
