DILI, 18 january 2024 (TATOLI) – The Government of Timor-Leste, through the Council of Ministers, on wednesday, approved the agreement between Timor-Leste and Vietnam for visa exemptions for diplomatic and official passport holders.

The draft agreement was presented by the Vice-Minister for ASEAN Affairs, Milena Maria da Costa Rangel.

“This agreement aims to strengthen the friendly relations between the two countries and facilitate travel by their citizens for tourist purposes,” said in a statement.

Taking into account Timor-Leste’s ongoing accession process as the 11th member of ASEAN, and its observer status at ASEAN Summits, this deliberation is also intended to align with the provisions of the ASEAN Tourism Agreement and the Roadmap for the Accession of Timor-Leste to ASEAN.

The aim is to effectively promote tourism in the region and strengthen the bonds of friendship between ASEAN citizens, reflecting Timor-Leste’s commitment to implement and respect all ASEAN instruments, including the ASEAN Framework Agreement on Visa Exemption.
