RENUNCIATION OF CITIZENSHIP
Renunciation of citizenship must be done in person at the Embassy. In order to renounce your Malaysian citizenship, you must first obtain the Dutch nationality. The Dutch Immigration and Naturalization Service (IND) will request evidence from you that you have started your renunciation procedure within three months of receiving your Dutch passport. This comes in the form of a letter that the Embassy will issue once your application is completed.
Please bring the following original documents to your appointment:
- Malaysian Passport
- Malaysian IC
- Malaysian Birth Certificate
- Two (2) passport size pictures
- Dutch Passport
- Certificate of Citizenship (Bekendmaking van verlening van het Nederlanderschap)
- Renunciation fee (cash only)
The original birth certificate and the Renunciation Approval Letter will be returned to you once your application has been approved. Please note that this process can take approximately 6 months to complete.
