VISAS : Visas are currently not necessary as long as travellers have a valid passport. Upon arrival, an entry permit valid for 30 days will be issued. If the traveller can prove that he/she has valid grounds for staying in East Timor, they can then obtain an extension.

Types of visa and cost : From 19 April 2003, East Timor began to charge a fee for visas issued on arrival. They cost US$25 for stays of 30 days and less; extensions cost US$30 for each subsequent period of 30 days. Fines of US$50 apply to each 30-day period if advance payment and extension of visas have not been sought and approved.
