Security concerns when shipping to East Timor
There has been some political unrest in East Timor in years past which have trickled into present day, giving pause to when you want to ship there. These outbursts have shown themselves in the way of terrorist attacks and political protests, both of which have done damage to infrastructure through the country causing damage to shipments and delays in the shipments that were undamaged. It is best to get some insurance out on any shipments you plan to ship there for these reasons and to talk to your shipping company about their plan of action if something does occur to your parcels while in their care.
