Thank you Dannyboy, banana72,jstar for all your conversations....I am at the moment search about how to go back living in Indonesia as an Ex WNIHello all,
I am currently an ex-WNI hoping to get my KITAP (through ex Indonesian KITAS) later this year after I move to Indonesia with my wife. I've been in conversations with few agents in Indonesia asking for their advice regarding the procedures for such an application.
Because I am an ex-WNI, I was informed by them that I need to get a 'surat keterangan pelepasan WNI' as the requirement by the Disduk (dinas kependudukan) for me in getting the SKTT and KTP-OA. This is to make sure my NIK (residency number) can be removed from their system (I used to have a KTP in Indo). However, the problem is, I don't know how to get such document! When I inquired to the embassy here (Australia), they said that they have no idea what document that is. All they could give me is a letter saying that my Indonesian passport had been surrendered because I am an Australian citizen. They then said, even if there is one, only the President of Indonesia has the authority to remove someone's NIK.
My question is: has anyone who applied for KITAP as an ex-Indonesian (index 318) ever been asked by the Dinas Kependudukan them for such document?
