The Ministry of Foreign Affairs through its Embassy in Jakarta is closely monitoring Mount Agung volcanic activities after the continuous eruptions reported since Sunday, 26 November 2017 following the first eruption on Tuesday, 21 November 2017.

The eruptions affected the surrounding areas of Kabupaten Karangasem, prompting the cancellation of flights to and from Bali and temporary closure of I Gusti Ngurah Rai International Airport. Malaysians are therefore advised to defer non-urgent travel to Bali.

Malaysians affected by the disaster are encouraged to report to the Embassy of Malaysia in Jakarta and to follow instructions issued by the local authorities accordingly.

Malaysians requiring consular assistance are advised to contact the Embassy of Malaysia in Jakarta or the Honorary Consul of Malaysia in Bali as follows:
