Volunteers are responsible for booking own flights to and from Dili, the main airline is Air North which departs from Darwin where the team will meet and board together on the Saturday morning.  If you make your way via Bali the meeting point will be Dili Airport on the Saturday morning.

We ask that you pay $295AUD to Solar Smiles Dental Charity to cover all food in Maubisse, transport, 2hr Tetum course, 7 day unlimited data sim card, some tourist activities, t-shirts & travel insurance, all other money you will pay directly to the hotels and shops as we go.  

Please note VISA is the only credit cards accepted in Timor Leste.  VISA or cash can be used at the Dili hotel otherwise you will need to bring USD with you to cover your trip.  The exchange rate is far better in Australia than in Timor Leste.  Please ask for small notes to bring with you $100 & $50 are very hard to break.

Solar Smiles Dental Charity does not make any profit on the tour, we try to keep costs as low as possible to encourage volunteer involvement in our program.
