Australians travelling to Indonesia have been advised to exercise a high degree of caution following US government warnings about potential terrorist attacks.

The Department of Foreign Affairs says it is receiving information that indicates terrorists may be planning attacks in Indonesia, which could take place at any time.

The US government on Sunday warned of a potential threat against US-associated hotels and banks in Surabaya.

“You should exercise particular caution around locations that have a low level of protective security and avoid places known to be possible terrorist targets,” the department says in its latest travel advice.

The advice also notes Indonesian immigration staff may refuse entry to Australians with a criminal record, regardless of how long ago the offence took place.
