There was a marked increase in seismic activity from Mt Agung Volcano in Bali, Indonesia during 2018. Eruptions occured in late June and early July, and the potential for further activity remains.
Ash clouds have previously disrupted air travel in and out of Bali, further ash clouds could cause airport closures and the cancellation of flights at short notice. For more information please see Bali International Airport’s website.
Most insurance providers do not provide cover for natural disasters including volcanic eruptions. We advise all New Zealand travellers to carefully review their travel insurance policy before departing.
For health advice on dealing with volcanic ash please see the Ministry of Health’s website.
New Zealanders in Bali are advised to update their registration information or take this opportunity to register with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade.
