Heightened security likely during Independence Day celebrations on August 17; avoid large gatherings

TIMEFRAME expected from 8/17/2020, 12:00 AM until 8/18/2020, 11:59 PM (Asia/Jakarta). COUNTRY/REGION Indonesia


Heightened security measures are likely to be in place in urban centers nationwide during Independence Day celebrations on Monday, August 17. The main parades traditionally occur at Merdeka Palace in Jakarta; however, due to the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic, these are unlikely to be held. Despite this, large celebratory gatherings can not be ruled out and should be anticipated in urban centers nationwide. Additionally, travelers should still expect a heightened police presence around government buildings and sensitive security installations.


During the above date, those in Indonesia's major urban centers are advised to avoid any large gatherings. Members should be mindful of the increased security presence, heed any directives issued by local authorities, and immediately report any suspicious items or activity.
