An Indonesian court has rejected appeals by two Australian drug traffickers trying to avoid their executions.

Myuran Sukumaran and Andrew Chan were challenging President Joko Widodo's decision to refuse them clemency.

On Monday, the Jakarta High Administrative Court agreed with a lower court that the case is out of their jurisdiction since clemency is the prerogative of the president.

Sukumaran and Chan are among 10 drug smugglers whose planned executions last month were adjourned due to last-minute appeals from six inmates.

The other foreigners among the 10 include three Nigerians and four men from Brazil, France, Ghana and a Filipino woman.
