Timor-Leste Travel Information


Timor-Leste (the Democratic Republic of Timor-Leste, often unofficially known as "East Timor") is a country in Southeast Asia. The country is located on the eastern half of the island of Timor, some nearby islands, and also includes an exclave (Oecussi) on the Indonesian side of Timor.

As of 2009, the population of Timor-Leste was estimated at just over 1.1 million. Around 150,000 people live in the capital and largest city, Dili, which is also the country's chief port and commercial center.

Timor-Leste was a Portuguese colony from the early 16th century until 1975. Just 9 days after gaining independence from Portugal it was then occupied by Indonesia which remained in control of the country until 1999 (although fighting a guerilla war against the independence movement for all of this period). When Timor-Leste finally regained independence in 1999 under UN auspices, there was further violence and destruction of property during the transition. As a result, Timor-Leste remains today one of the world's poorest countries. There were, for example, food crises in 2005 (including a number of deaths from starvation) and 2007.
