Berhubung sudah hampir pindahan, hampir tiap hari saya browsing soal ini. Ternyata hari Selasa kemarin ini (21 Nov) telah diserahkan SK WN ganda ke anak2 pasangan campuran. Baru ketemu sedikit media yg mewartakan berita tsb:
JawaPos: Menkum HAM Serahkan SK untuk Paspor Ganda (artikel
Detik.com: Penyerahan SK Kewarganegaraan (laporan foto)
Langsung balik lagi ke situsnya Departemen Kehakiman dan HAM utk cari tahu ttg detail dan (mungkin ada) Newsflash-nya.. lho kok nggak bisa diakses ("server not found")
Positive thinking: mungkin mereka sedang memutakhirkan isi situs, atau mungkin karena adanya berita tsb situs mereka kebanjiran pengunjung, jadi server-nya jebol.
Di entry ini saya berniat mengumpulkan klipping ttg kepengurusan kewarganegaraan anak2 hasil perkawinan campuran. Jadi kalau ada yg nemu sumber lain, tolong kasih tau ya. Trims!

First children made dual citizens
The Jakarta Post, Jakarta
group of 13 children of transnational marriages with foreign fathers,
obtained Indonesian citizenship Tuesday, the first children to do so
following the passage of the citizenship law in July.
Before the new law was enacted, children of transnational marriages
automatically had to follow their fathers' citizenship. Children with
Indonesian fathers are still denied dual citizenship. Currently there are some 300 to 400 other children are waiting for dual citizenship applications to be processed.
Justice and Human Rights Minister Hamid Awaluddin handed over Indonesian passports to the 13 children at a ceremony here.
Hamid said the children, aged between one and 14 years and currently
holding only foreign passports, were given Indonesian citizenship less
than 28 days after they made their official applications. The children were exempted from paying any fees for the passports
because of a transitional administration period, said Melati
Transnational Marriage Community (KPC Melati) head Enggi Holt, who
attended the event.
Hamid said the process of obtaining dual citizenship takes at least 28 days. The immigration office needs 14 days to process the required documents
before handing them over to the Justice and Human Rights Ministry,
which will take up to another 14 days to grant local citizenship, the
The newly-enacted citizenship law gives children of transnational
marriages with Indonesian mothers the right to dual citizenship until
they are 18 years old. At 18, they can choose whether to stay Indonesian citizens or follow
their foreign fathers' citizenship. They will be then given three more
years to decide on which nationality to choose. If they are married before the age of 18, their dual citizenship will be revoked. Before the passage of the law, transnational parents had to pay up to
Rp 12 million for a temporary living permit for each of their children
"Those wishing for their children to have Indonesian citizenship must
register at local justice offices. We have been sending registration
forms to our provincial offices," Hamid said.
He said that the immigration office was not charging any administration fees for the time being. "Please report any unscrupulous officials to KPC Melati and they will forward the complaints to us," the minister said. However, he said, applicants will have to pay an administration fee after he and the finance minister agree on an amount.
In response to the plan, Enggi said her association urged the
government to charge a fair amount, arguing that in reality officials
often collected extra levies.
Dual citizenship applicants must provide four copies of each of the
required documents, all to be certified by the relevant authorities. The documents include a birth certificate, a marriage certificate, the
mother's identity card, the mother's family identification card and a
photo of the child. A letter stating that the child in question is not married is also
required for the application. The applicant must also fill in the
registration form. The KPC Melati said the certification process would be a burdensome,
particularly for transnational children living outside Indonesia.
