Safety: Following the bombings in Bali (1 October 2005), there remains a high risk of terrorism directed against foreigners throughout the country and reports indicate that terrorists are planning further attacks on Westerners and western interests and are likely to be carried out at locations frequented by tourists. The Indonesian Police are on a state of high alert in Jakarta, and have deployed additional personnel around the city. The security situation remains unsettled in Sulawesi and foreigners are advised to avoid parts of Maluku, particularly Ambon, and Central Sulawesi. Visitors are also advised to avoid all travel to Aceh (except for those involved in humanitarian operations after the earthquake and tsunami which devastated the region in December 2004). It is strongly recommended that visitors contact their foreign office for the latest travel advice before travelling to Indonesia.
