The tasks of the embassy

On September 28, 2018, several earthquakes of varying magnitude struck in Central Sulawesi and triggered a tsunami. They have claimed more than 1500 lives and caused massive damage. The hardest affected areas are Palu and the surrounding area. The repair of the infrastructure damage may take several months.

In July and August 2018, several earthquakes of varying magnitude struck the island of Lombok and the Gili Islands. They have claimed over 500 lives and have caused massive damage. The repair of the infrastructure may take several months.

It is highly recommended to contact your travel agency or airline before travelling to Central Sulawesi, Lombok and/or the Gili Island to check whether your travel arrangements are subject to disruption.

If you are staying in the earthquake affected zone you should continue to follow the advice of the local authorities, monitor local media, keep in touch with your travel agent and/or airline, and keep up-to-date on the situation with your acquaintances or your hotel.
