Naturalization and Citizenship

Immigration, naturalization and foreigner registration (Imigrasi, pewarganegaraan, kewarganegaraan)

This record type includes records of immigrants, foreign residents, citizens, and persons receiving Indonesian citizenship. They are very valuable for making proper connections to place of origin in other countries, and for pinpointing place of residence in Indonesia. Records begin in the 1700s during the Dutch colonial period and continue to the present.

Generally these records contain the immigrant’s name, age, occupation, birth date and place, former residence, destination; wife’s name, childrens’ given names and ages or number of children; religion, race, nationality, sometimes picture. Chinese immigration records give names and places in Chinese characters. Records can be found at the National Archives, municipal archives, Chinese community kapitans.
