Iso 3166-2:tl

ISO 3166-2:TL is the entry for codes for the names of the principal subdivisions (e.g., provinces or states) of all countries coded in ISO 3166-1.

Currently for East Timor, ISO 3166-2 codes are defined for 13 districts.

Each code consists of two parts, separated by a hyphen. The first part is TL, the ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 code of East Timor. The second part is two letters.

Before it became independent from Indonesia in 2002, East Timor was officially assigned the ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 code TP. Moreover, it was also assigned the ISO 3166-2 code ID-TT under the entry for Indonesia.
