Mar 6 Scheiner: Don't mail items to East Timor via Indonesian Post

Send mail items to East Timor "via Darwin, AUSTRALIA"

Whenever you send a package or letter to East Timor, you need to put "via Darwin, AUSTRALIA" as part of the address. Otherwise it goes to Jakarta and gets returned months later. If you send it via Darwin, it has at least a 50% chance of getting delivered. For items which are crucial or irreplaceable, it's best to deliver them by hand.

There is no mail service between Indonesia and East Timor at this time.
