I am an Indonesian with SPR and married to a Singaporean. I am blessed with a pair fraternal twins (1 boy & 1 girl) and they are 9 months old.
After I gave birth to them, I thought of applying only Indonesia passports for both of them, but I didn't realized I need to do the application within 30 days after birth. as . I was told to apply Singapore passports first before I can apply for Indonesia passports at the Indonesia Embassy.
Eventually, I got both countries passports for my children. Indonesia passports were given after the Singapore passports. ID government is aware of dual citizenship for my children and I assume the SG government is not aware and should not be informed by ID embassy.
I will travel to Indonesia end of the month without my Singaporean husband and I am concerned which passport should be used for exiting SG/entering ID & vice verse.
Please take note both passports are new and without any entry stamp on it. I am concerned, for example, if ID passports are used during exiting SG, will the custom officer question why no there is no entry stamps? Should use SG PP to exit SG and enter ID? In this case, ID mother traveling with twins SG PP. What kind of implications can it be at both customs?
My children are allowed have dual citizenship till the age of 18 years old. After reaching 18 years of age individuals are forced to choose one citizenship by Indonesia laws.
On the other hand, the registration of NS for male is at the age of 13(or 10?). My husband has not decided whether my boy should serve NS. He is keeping the option open till the 10 years is up. He hopes that Indonesia Government will allow permanent dual citizenship
before time is up.
I will really want my children to have Indonesia citizenship for lifetime but also keeping SG citizenship without being caught after they turned 21. If my boy served 2 years NS and (unlucky enough) to have his SG citizenship revoked later, then it is absolute waste of time and opportunities.
Please let me have your views and accounts if you have the situation like me.
