For U.S. Citizens, a passport valid for six months beyond the intended date of departure from Timor-Leste is required. Citizens of other countries should check with their Consular services to verify passport and visa requirements. Tourist visas are not required prior to arrival, but U.S. travelers arriving in Timor-Leste without a visa will need to pay a $30 fee for the 30-day visa. There is an additional fee for each 30-day renewal of this tourist visa. Visitors traveling via air from the United States and other countries must transit either Darwin, Australia or Bali, Indonesia en route to Timor-Leste. Visit the Government of Timor-Leste’s web site at http://www.timor-leste.gov.tl/ for the most current visa information.
