    I am trying to find information about the correct process to get my daughter registered as a dual citizen.
    She is a few years old now and already has her British passport.
    What documents are needed and what are the steps to take?

    Was she born in Indonesia? Is she in Indonesia presently, and does she have an Indonesian birth certificate?

    Then all you need to do is go to your local KanIm with her British passport, her birth cert, your passport, mum's KTP, KK and passport, (of course copies of all the above), then ask to apply for Affidavit Dwikewarganegaraan, or an Indonesian passport.

    Hi all,

    I’m am looking to get dual citizenship for my son in Bali too.

    I have been told to get the Indonesian passport first and then apply for the European passport second without making an affidavit.

    Is this true? Or is there a hidden secret of getting the foreigner passport first before the Indonesian?

    Any information is appreciated.

    When my son was born in 2015, I got the British passport first - as this is the most important one for me.

    Then after I had that, I applied for the Indonesian passport. I did not show them the British passport and I did not get an affidavit.

    So I followed all of dafluffs's steps in number 4 (apart from my sons British passport), and applied for the Indonesian passport.
