The UK Foreign Office has revised its advice for Indonesia. They are now advising all but essential travel to Aceh following the implementation of the peace agreement which was signed on 15 August 2005. The relevant section of the Travel Advice summary now reads:
“We advise against all but essential travel to Aceh which is emerging from a long-running internal conflict. You should exercise caution if travelling to remote areas. You should also monitor all available information on the local situation.”
The FCO previously advised “against all travel to Aceh, except for those involved in post tsunami humanitarian and reconstruction work or in the Aceh Monitoring Mission. Aceh remains affected by long running internal conflict. You should exercise caution when travelling in remote areas.
Full details of the revised travel advice for Indonesia are available on the Foreign Office website ( http://www.fco.gov.uk ).
