You can fly to Dili from Denpasar (Bali) and Darwin. Dili’s Presidente Nicolau Lobato International Airport is a 10-minute drive from town.

  • Darwin to Díli: Air North usually flies daily between Dili and Darwin (Australia). There’s no office in Dili; book online.

Border Crossings

Getting to the border

Catch a direct daily Dili–Kupang (Indonesia) minibus (US$23, 12 hours) through Timor Tour & Travel.

It’s slightly cheaper but harder work to catch a local bus to Batugade (US$5) at the border. You can then walk through both border checkpoints and catch local transport to West Timor destinations (US$3 to Atambua, then US$7 Kupang; eight hours). Start early, and expect to wait for transport connections.

The Wini border is 20 minutes from Oecusse Town.

At the border

Most passport holders can get an Indonesian visa on arrival.

Moving on

It’s complicated to head through to Oecusse after traveling through Indonesia: you’ll need to already have a visa for Timor-Leste, which is available in Kupang (Indonesia).


There are no passenger boat services to Timor-Leste from other countries.
