Notary cost for certified copies is around 50-100.000 Rp. A certified statement is 300-500.000 Rp.

I thought about the refund process same as you, but is not impossible and not so hard (I did for other type of case, no problems).

Thanks. I will try it out and find out the cost at my place. Attached is the procedure.

Notary costs for legalisir can vary a lot; over here it costs 150K for a simple document.

And for an IMB copy with some BPN visits some asked 7.5 Juta. Another did it for 4 Juta.

That is why if the cost sum about 2 juta why should I go thru the process of get back the money. Is not making sense.

In a few days my application will come to end with SK on hand. A long and winding journey. Important thing to take note that prepare all the necessary documents and always remember to follow thru your document that you send by courier and do not end like me. My document was sit on for 2 week until I email AHU CS several times before it was send to the proper person in charge. Best if you sent your query to AHU Humas. And always go online and have a look at your dashboard for any update as AHU will not inform if there is a need to resubmit improper document or your SK is out. I will try my best to list the document needed and step by step.

Congratulations @DzulnSiti ! Was travelling so couldn’t react sooner.

What ‘proof’ do you need to have in your possession to show the CatSip? Didn’t you need an additional reporting within 60 days after the oath etc. or was that already done?

Just come back from Jakarta after renounce my citizenship at the embassy. I only bring the original and photocopy of the SK when I change the e-ktp,kk dan birth cert. Since there is a Filipino guy who have done before me there is no question from them about the hole procedure. Further since I need the document done fast I give voluntary "donation".hint,hint... with in 14 days need to surrender my passport and ID back to the embassy. And there is no 60 days as we did not take oath other then the written one with materai sign by me. The France guy was ask for it and it was a old procedure, I did sent him the perpres(Perpres-Nomor-96-Tahun-2018- having problen to upload to the forum file too big) to bring along to renew his documentation.

Relinquishing your US citizenship will, I presume, lose any pension entitlements which may or not matter.
I don't know about US but I just checked up online re UK, and it states that citizenship doesn't count towards pension entitlement only contributions matter.

I too have decided to embark on this citizenship boat.
Thank you for this thread @OomBen

I just hope KanWil is open & processing such things due to the coronavirus stuff.

Now I need to gird my loins for all the stress attached to gathering up required documents & (tidying my office cupboards :O )
My UK pp is due to expire in the non-too-distant future
My ITAP is due to expire next year
I have no interruptions to my visas for way more than 5 years , my Bhs Indonesian isn't "that bad"
I can sing 3 words of the natl anthem: Indonesia, Indonesia, Indonesia...
I know they have something about land & water in it.
I can la,la lahhh the rest of the tune, hopefully they won't notice haha.
Wish me luck peeps, I fear I will need it as just a regular visa extension usually puts strain on our marriage :D
Hubby way more organised with documents than I & hates my 'filing system'.

Good luck, please let us know how it works with the "renouncing British citizenship" part of it, what letters they give you, if it is done by VfS or the Embassy itself, how much it costs to renounce, how long it takes ..

I believe it costs under 350 quid.

Being married to an Indonesian you don't need to know the national anthem nor you need to be fluent with Bahasa Indonesia (however it s a bit weird to me to be a citizen of a nation and not speaking the national language - looking with insistance at my kids who speak perfectly English, Bahasa Indonesia, bahasa Manado but... only know "ca va" in French).
The procedure for you is online and not at the kanwil.

Read carefully the thread, particularly the post of a female poster who did the whole procedure online.

I speak a reasonable amount of the language, but it hasn't been 'learnt' properly, certainly much more informal than a lot of what I see written down but enough to communicate reasonably effectively.
Re the online procedure, I had noticed that the KanWil has moved out of the process & that it is now online. I have yet to figure out where online.
:* thanks for the clarification
I have basically grabbed all the posts from here that seemed pertinent & printed them off, I shall work through them with hubby at some point this week.
