Mount Agung, a volcano in Karangasem Regency in East Bali, began a small-scale eruption on 21 November. The alert level of the National Disaster Management Authority for Indonesia remains unchanged. Monitor local media reports, follow the instructions of local authorities, and stay outside the existing exclusion zone, which extends up to 7.5 kms from the crater. There is the potential for ash fall to disrupt flights, if volcanic activity escalates. Individual airlines make their own decisions about flight operations. Contact your airline or tour operator directly for up-to-date information (see Additional information). The level of our advice has not changed. Exercise a high degree of caution in Indonesia, including Bali. Higher levels apply in some parts of the country.

Expect large crowds in city centres following President Mugabe's resignation on 21 November. There continues to be a heightened security presence in Harare. Avoid demonstrations, rallies and large-scale public gatherings as they could turn violent. Also avoid political activity or activities which could be interpreted as political, including political discussions in public places. Monitor the media and other information sources. Reconsider your need to travel to Harare. Exercise a high degree of caution in Zimbabwe overall and pay close attention to the environment.
