Tentative list[edit]

The tentative list is an inventory of important heritage and natural sites that a country is considering for inscription on the World Heritage List, thereby becoming World Heritage Sites. The tentative list can be updated at any time, but inclusion on the list is a prerequisite to being considered for inscription within a five- to ten-year period.[2]
