DFAT statement on arrangements at the Australian Embassy in Jakarta
Based on medical advice, Australia’s Ambassador to Indonesia, Gary Quinlan AO, is being temporarily relocated to Australia. Ambassador Quinlan will continue to oversee embassy operations from Australia.
This is purely a precautionary measure, related to accepted COVID-19 vulnerabilities.
Australia’s embassy and consulates in Indonesia are resourced to continue to serve Australia’s interests, including by providing consular support to Australians at this challenging time.
