How to Renew Indonesian Passport in Singapore

If your Indonesian passport expiring soon (within 6 months) make sure that you renew your passport before you're traveling out of Singapore.

Just follow these steps

1. Print and Fill in the Form of request (use only black pen

2. Prepare all the documents (there's no need to bring a photo) 

-Old passport and one copy of old passport (first and the last page)
-Singapore ID Card and its copy (Work permit, Employment Pass, S-Pass, Dependant Pass, Student Pass,  Permanent Resident)
-Copy of birth certificate (in Indonesian language)
-Married Certificate / Divorce Certicate (if you have)
-For flight attendants, all of the requirements above must be completed with company letter stating that the flight attendant is to renew his/her passport.
Bring Cash! $38 (for standard passport)

Go to the Indonesia embassy website to get the latest requirement over here

3. It will take 3 days to renew your passport, so plan wisely if you are about to travel. Also check the public holiday (sometimes they have their own holiday)  KBRI Singapore Public holiday
Their Opening Hour
Time for Submission 9:00 - 12:00 (Monday to Friday)
Time for Collection 15:00 - 17:00 (Monday to Friday)
*always check for the collection timing.


4. Use an appropriate Dress Code...
Once I went there with a short pants, they refused to let me in ... they offered me to rent it, which I did.

The following attire is not allowed inside the KBRI Singapore: Shorts and Bermuda except for children below 12 years old, Singlet and strapless top


5.  Take Taxi / Bus, you can take Bus from RedHill / Outram Park
The Address Embassy of The Republic Indonesia

Email: info@kbrisingapura.com

6. You need to give IC / other identification for an exchange of a visitor pass - please wear the visitor pass all the time (don't give the identification that you'll use to apply the passport)

7. just walk straight and enter the building on your left. 


8. Go to the help desk, they receptionist will check your forms and documents and give you the queue number. 


9. When they call your number proceed to the counter and bring all your documents, they will check on your documents and ask you to wait. your name will be called for the next step.


10. when they call your name, please proceed to the bio metric's room to take your fingerprints and photo. 


11. After that they will give you a piece of paper and bring that to the cashier (infront of the help desk), make payment and they will give you a receipt with the date of collection.  For maid there might an additional step to go to the second floor.

  6. is it a must to have the birth certificate or IC? what if don have both?

    ReplyDelete
  7. 1. you can tell someone in Indonesia to send you a copy of it both better Birth Cert and KTP (no need the original, a photocopy will do)

    2. just go to counter and if they ask you, tell them you don't have it with you here in Singapore and tell them to process the passport first if possible, then later on submit the copy.

    *sometimes they do not check, depends on the officer some are strict.

    I recommend you to go for the first option. sending a photocopy of that 2 documents is cheaper than you pay a visit there and rejected.

  8. Thanks for your information, this is very useful.
    The indonesian embassy website somehow became a casino website lately, what is wrong with that? :|

  14. May I know where to print the form required u have mentioned?

    ReplyDelete
  15. Hi there,

    In the past (if not mistaken) you can download the form from http://www.kbrisingapura.com/

    But now the website seems to have been taken down (not sure what's the reason)

    So you can directly come to the embassy and take it at he counter (no need to queue, just ask them that to need the form) don't forget to prepare all the documents.

    Let us know your experience :

    1. no that i know of, but I guess you can park along the way (private houses there) as long as you don't block the exit.

      nearest carpark that i can think of is camden medical center but it's quite a distance to walk to the embassy.

    3. I don't think you can renew your passport yet. why do you want to renew it now? I believe that you can only go out of the country if you passport is expiry is more than 6 months, in that case you do not need to renew your passport in Singapore.

  53. Hey, I just got my passport application rejected cause I don't have a KBRI's version of my Singapore's birth certificate (I'm an Indonesian by citizen but born in Singapore).

    Problem is I have absolutely no idea on where to get this KBRI's version of birth certificate in Singapore. Do you happen to know anything about this?

    And if I'm travelling back to Indonesia with my Indonesian passport, which is expiring in 6 months, can I travel back to Singapore? I have no problem entering Singapore cause I'm holding a Student Pass, but I'm not sure on what is the process of leaving Indonesia with an expiring passport.

    Would love to hear your opinion on this

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hi,

      ask your parents whether they have the Indonesian version. your parents should've register you in the Embassy to get the Indonesian Birth Cert when you were born.

      here is the link Click here for pencatatan kelahiran you may need to register to get the Indonesian birth cert, please also call them first to confirm at +65-6839 5407 (Singapore KBRI Embassy Immigration)

      for your second question, I don't think they will allow you to travel out of the country (even they will stop you at check in because there is always a requirement for airlines to check the min validity which is 6 months)

      Please do share your experience :)

  54. Hi,

    For Singapore ID card, is Visit Pass considered one of them? FYI, I am just graduated from poly and currently looking for a job, thus no work pass at the moment.

    And I tried to call their office number, but always engaged. Appreciate if you could advise me on this. Thanks in advance =)

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. nope, visit pass / tourist pass is not considered as Singapore ID. you can use Singapore IC, Work Permit, S Pass, etc.

      you can try to use your Student ID Card.

  55. Pls advise if they have limited number of renewal in a day? I'm afraid if the Q is too long and we are rejected because the Q number is over the limit for the day. Also do you know when is the off-peak day, the best day to go for the renewal of my maid's passport? My mother is bed-ridden and I cannot leave her too long without the maid around. Will appreciate your prompt reply. Thank you so much. MT

  60. Need some help.
    We have an indonesian maid in jeddah, saudi. But she has lost all the
    the papers and doesn't have any document with her. She has lost the
    passport and hence the visa number and everything. All she has got is
    an indonesian identity card.
    Now there is an amnesty going on here in saudi, by which such maids
    can rectify their documents and thus she made new passport from
    indonesian embassy. But to make her stay legal here she needs to
    register her name in the ministry of Labour here, for which she needs
    the entry number or visa number or for that matter old passport number
    so that officials can feed in to their database and obtain the
    previous records.
    My request is that can someone help us to get her old passport number
    from her National identity card number and we are ready to pay for the
    services.
    Thanking you.

  61. Hi, just wanted to share with the readers here about renewal of maid's passport. I just went to apply yesterday (Wed) using the form that I had printed from online. The new procedure that was shared by the embassy itself did not include the interview process. After the biometric room's process my maid and I had to proceed to the upper floor and take a Q number from the reception. After the interview (which took hardly 10mins where we had to sign an agreement) we had to wait again to be called by the receptionist so she can hand over the said agreement. We can collect the passport tomorrow (Fri) from 3-4pm (They close early during fasting month). Hope this info is helpful!
