Forum Software Migration (2nd Update)

As you may have noticed, the forum software has undergone a bit of a facelift. We've migrated from vBulletin4 to vBulletin5.2.2. As with all software major updates, there will undoubtedly be a few hiccups. As with all software upgrades, vBulletin has made changes in how their software works, so there may be a bit of a learning curve as you re-orient yourself to their changed environment.

We have worked through the initial hiccups that were reported. If you experience additional issues, please pm them to wm and we'll work through them. Thanks for your patience!

  • Documents needed for apply dual citizenship..

    My dad is indonesian but i was born here in new zealand. im going to indonesia on a sosbud. but i was told that i can apply for indonesian residency because my dad is indonesian which automatically makes me indonesian before im 18. and i have just turned 17. so what are the documents needed to present to them when getting my indonesian residency ??

    Since the immigration law that governs dual citizenship was signed in 2006, it automatically applies only to anyone born after the law took effect. Those born before 2006 had until 2010 to register and apply for dual Indonesian citizenship. Assuming you didn't apply for it back then, you are considered a citizen of NZ only. The new 2011 law grants permanent residence to former Indonesian citizens, since technically you have never been one, you are not eligible for it. Sorry.

      I concur with Injun's post. It's also too late for you to apply for dual citizenship in the scope of article 41 UU 12/2006 tentang kewarganegaraan RI (you had untill August 1st 2010 to do so) and you don't qualify for a naturalization.
