We investigate the external hydrostatic pressure effect on the superconducting transition temperature (T-c) of new layered superconductors Bi4O4S3 and NdO0.5F0.5BiS2. Though the T-c is found to have a moderate decrease from 4.8 K to 4.3 K (dT(c)(onset)/dP = -0.28 K/GPa) for Bi4O4S3 superconductor, the same increases from 4.6 K to 5 K (dT(c)(onset)/dP = 0.44 K/GPa) up to 1.31 GPa followed by a sudden decrease from 5 K to 4.7 K up to 1.75 GPa for NdO0.5F0.5BiS2 superconductor. The variation of T-c in these systems may be correlated to an increase or decrease of the charge carriers in the density of states under externally applied pressure.
