In November 2008, the Australian Government formally accepted an offer from the then-President of Timor-Leste for Australian Defence Force (ADF) personnel to accept and wear the Timor-Leste Solidarity Medal (TLSM). The medal was established to recognise those men and women who provided service in stability and peace operations in Timor-Leste from 1 May 2006. Approximately 7,000 ADF members have been awarded the medal and have been approved by the Governor-General to wear the medal.

ADF members must not contact the Government of Timor-Leste directly concerning their eligibility for the TLSM.

  1. members qualify having served a minimum of 180 days continuous or accrued service in East Timor from 01 May 2006;
