Hi everyone,

Currently, I am living and working in Dili, East Timor. Officially, I just started my assignment here starting from the 1st of July this year. I am working for one UN agency based here in Dili. I am originally from Jakarta, Indonesia. Prior to coming to East Timor, I was posted in two other countries like Pakistan and Ethiopia.

I don't know how many of you have joined the forum out there. But, I just would like to get to know you.

looking forward to know about people  here in Dili.


Hi Sibghat444,

It is good to know to see another newcomer to East Timor posted his introduction here.

At least I get to know one new member of the East Timor forum.

So, we can revive this forum and exchange information and ideas about the city.

Hi LVL and welcome to the forum.

For cost of living try

Hi Stumpy,
Thank you for your reply. Ive read the other posts, some are quite useful although perhaps a little out of date and didn't really come across anyone from the UK. My plan would be to set up a business in TL - I was looking for any advice on how foreigners are viewed by locals, especially as I'll be looking for staff. Its clearly a huge decision. I'll be travelling to TL in a view weeks, guess I'll get a feel for the place then, I have other options on places to set up, but I hoping it goes well in TL.
