Risk Summary

Normal travel is possible to most parts of Indonesia. However, the security environment varies considerably across the country. Papua and West Papua province is affected by a low-intensity secessionist conflict and as such present a high risk security environment; travel to these areas should be for essential purposes only.

There remains a credible risk of terrorist attack in the capital Jakarta and other main cities, potentially involving anything from lower-level shootings to large-scale suicide bombings. However, the frequency of these incidents will continue to be limited by the country's counter-terrorism capability. Instead, civil unrest and protests are a more common occurrence in major urban areas and tend to be disruptive; demonstrations occasionally end in clashes with the security forces. Crime – both violent and non-violent – is also a concern to business travellers and expatriates.

Indonesia is also periodically affected by natural disasters including earthquakes, tsunamis, flooding and volcanic eruptions. These natural disasters vary in type and intensity across the archipelago.

This information is intended as a summary of the travel security environment; however, the risks can change at short notice during a crisis or evolving situation. Please check our travel security alerts to ensure you are informed of the most recent developments.
