The Indonesian authorities lowered Mount Agung’s alert status from the highest Level IV (Danger) to Level III (Standby) on 10 February 2018. The exclusion zone was also reduced from 6 KM to 4 KM around its crater. However, as the alert level for Mount Agung could change at short notice, the Indonesian authorities have cautioned the people in the vicinity for possible evacuation should the alert level is elevated.

Malaysians are advised to take all necessary precautions for their personal safety, monitor the local news closely and to follow the instructions from the local authorities.

Malaysians in need of consular assistance may contact the Honorary Consul of Malaysia in Bali through email or the Embassy of Malaysia in Jakarta through email or telephone call to +62215224947 and +6281380813036
