Under provisions contained within the Customs Code (Decree Law 14/2017), we are legally entitled to search any goods, person, vehicle or other conveyance that enters or exits the territory of Timor-Leste. This is a power that we take very seriously, and our aim is to only stop and search those persons or consignments (goods) that we consider could pose some level of risk. When making this assessment, we take into account a number of factors, including: your previous compliance history with us and other relevant government agencies; the type of goods, and where they are arriving from or going to; and any information received from other partner agencies. On some occasions, we may stop and search you or your goods to confirm that you are following the rules.
