The department added that Australians living in Jakarta who need the consular assistance could call +61 2 6261 3305. DFAT also asked the Australian people to call them immediately if they wanted to know their families’ whereabouts in Jakarta.

“Also please call the DFAT consular emergency center at 1300 555 135,” said the DFAT spokesperson.

DFAT recorded more than 1,000 Australians living in Jakarta. There was at least one Australian injured in the incident.
