The Roman Catholic Church in East Timor (Timor-Leste) consists only of a Latin hierarchy, joint in a national 'Episcopal conference of Timor', although it only comprises three exempt dioceses, i.e. all immediately subject to the Holy See (not part of any Ecclesiastical province) and still dependent on the missionary Roman Congregation for the Evangelization of Peoples.

There are no Eastern Catholic, pre-diocesan or defunct jurisdictions.

There is an Apostolic Nunciature as papal diplomatic representation (embassy-level) to Timor-Leste (East Timor), but it is located in giant neighbor Indonesia's capital Jakarta, at the same address as the Apostolic Nunciature to Indonesia, which however has another incumbent.
