Arrests

We visit Americans arrested or imprisoned in Indonesia to monitor their general welfare. We inform U.S. persons according to the wishes of the detainee due to privacy laws. Please contact us anytime to report the arrest of an American:

  • 62-21 3435-9050/9055 during workdays
  • 62-21 3435-9000 afterhours and on holidays

and ask for the duty officer. We cannot intervene in immigration or civil disputes and cannot act as a detainee's legal advisor.

We offer a List of Attorneys.  We assume no responsibility or liability for the professional ability or reputation of, or the quality of services provided by, the following persons or firms. Inclusion on this list is in no way an endorsement by the Department of State or the U.S. Embassy. Names are listed alphabetically, and the order in which they appear has no other significance. The information in the list on professional credentials, areas of expertise and language ability are provided directly by the lawyers; the Embassy is not in a position to vouch for such information. You may receive additional information about the individuals on the list by contacting the local bar association or the local licensing authorities. Please also see Information about Drug Abroad.
