Hello Priscilla,

I don't really have four-legged friends in Timor Leste (formerly known as East Timor.) From what I heard, it was not so easy to import pets to Timor Leste. I know someone who brought his dogs and cats to Dili, Timor Leste, and he had to go through a lengthy and painful process. He had to spend a lot of money for quarantine fees in Australia, and wait for a long time for the clearance from Timor Leste. After almost a year, he finally got his pets. What a relief for him. I just cannot picture myself going through the same process. Not if I can help it.
