The PM is still waiting for a 'final call' with Indonesia's president over the fate of the Bali Nine duo.

THE families of Andrew Chan and Myuran Sukumaran will see the death row inmates for the first time in almost a week, since their long-dreaded move to Nusakambangan.

The men are in limbo on the central Java island after arriving last Wednesday in expectation of their imminent executions for their role in the Bali Nine heroin smuggling plot.

Now, Jakarta has indicated it wishes to wait for the result of legal appeals of some of the 10 drug felons ready for the firing squad.

FINAL WORD: 'The real drug dealers go free'

Visiting Nusakambangan on Monday will be Chan's mother Helen and brother Michael, and Sukumaran's parents Sam and Raji, siblings Brintha and Chintu and other relatives.

They will be hopeful the visit won't be one of their last, with lawyers for the pair preparing yet another appeal for clemency to be heard in an administrative court in Jakarta on Thursday.

A visitor to the island last week told reporters the Australians were in Besi prison, one of the island's seven jails.

They were in a block of four cells and couldn't see each other but could talk to each other and a Nigerian death row convict in one of the other cells.

She had met the Nigerian, Raheem Agbaje Salami, in a small garden, and described the mood there as "isolated".

Prime Minister Tony Abbott is meanwhile still waiting for a "final call" with Indonesia's president over the fate of Chan, 31, and Sukumaran, 33.

Joko Widodo has already taken calls from Mr Abbott on the executions but this latest request hasn't yet been arranged.

In an interview with broadcaster Al Jazeera aired on Saturday, Jokowi, as he's known, left the door open to abolishing the death penalty in Indonesia in the future.

"The constitution and existing laws still allow (the death penalty) but in the future if it is necessary to change it and the people really want it, why not?" he said.

The men must get 72 hours notice of their executions, but the attorney-general's department now won't confirm if they will be held in March.
