Indonesia: Bali: Mount Agung Volcano

The National Disaster Management Authority for Indonesia has raised the volcanic alert level for Mount Agung volcano on Bali from orange to red (level 4 on a 4 level scale). The local Karangasem government continues to monitor the situation closely.

Residents and tourists have been warned to stay at least 9 kilometres from the crater. Evacuation orders are in place for those within that area due to the potential for an eruption. There is also the potential for flight disruptions as a result of volcanic ash clouds, although currently Ngurah Rai International Airport remains open.

In the event of volcanic ash clouds, New Zealanders travelling to/from Bali are advised to confirm their travel arrangements with their airline or travel agent directly, prior to travelling to the airport.  If your travel is disrupted, ensure you keep
all receipts to support your travel insurance claim.

New Zealanders in Bali are advised to update their registration information or take this opportunity to register with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade.
