DILI, 16 march 2022 (TATOLI) – The Government of Timor-Leste has today approved the exceptional and temporary health surveillance measures to handle the crisis caused by Covid-19 in the country.

Minister of the Presidency of the Council of Ministers, Fidelis Manuel Leite Magalhães informed that the entry and exit points at the land border posts of Batugadé, Salele, and the Special Administrative Region of Oé-usse Ambeno (RAEOA) would begin to function normally.

“With the amendment of this Decree-Law No. 26/2021, november 26, newcomers and visitors would need only to present a vaccination card to enter the national territory or would be quarantined as an alternative if needed. The opening hours of land border posts will be resumed,” Magalhães said at the Government Palace, in Dili, today.

He said there will be no more limitations on the opening hours of land border posts, as the entry and exit points would be functioning as normal.

Magalhães also added that the same measures would be applied for the passengers who enter the national territory by air: “Those passengers who enter the country by air must also present a complete vaccination card.”

“The amendment of the Decree-Law came after the approval of the National Parliament two weeks ago,” he recalled.
