Nov 29, 2017 Medical & Health Care Comments Off on Over 200 Taiwan nationals on Bali safe as Mt. Agung erupts
The foreign ministry is reporting that 275 Taiwanese nationals on the Indonesian island of Bali are safe after two eruptions of the island's Mt. Agung. Bali's airport has announced that it will remain closed until early Wednesday. On Tuesday, foreign ministry spokesperson Andrew Lee said that Taiwan's representative office has arranged transport to the airport in the Indonesian city of Surabaya for citizens wishing to leave before Bali's airport reopens.
Foreign ministry spokesperson Andrew Lee said Tuesday that the foreign ministry has been in contact with the leaders of Taiwanese tour groups on Bali and with locally based staff from Taiwan's two major airlines. Lee said that the two carriers and airport authorities are arranging travel out of Bali for those who wish to leave. Those who choose to leave will travel to Surabaya and fly from there back to Taiwan via Jakarta.
However, Lee said the trip to Surabaya airport from Bali could take ten to twelve hours. He said Taiwan's representative office in Indonesia respects travelers' wishes. He said "Taiwanese nationals there are all safe. There are no problems. They fully understand the local climate and the status of the volcanic ash, so they are continuing to stay there."
