    Hello,
    The figures that leics gives are the official figures that it should cost.

    In reality it will cost your friend almost double that, before the process is finished, if they do it themselves (passport photographs, photocopies of birth certificates, photocopies of family cards,photocopies of identity cards, materai stamps, bribes to officials for speeding up the process, purchase of forms and other documents etc), if they use the services of an agent then add around 500,000rp to the cost.

    The advantages of using the services of an agent are that it is quicker,there isn't or shouldnt be any payments made to corrupt officials, which in turn starts the process of stamping out corruption in those areas.

    It's a sad fact that although the authorities are striving to stamp out corruption, there isn't much they seem to be doing about it in this area, they are trying but not that hard at the moment, so your friend will undoubtably encounter some form of additional payment to some official or two, if they try to do it themselves.

    Another factor is where your friend lives in Indonesia, so take into account travel costs to the nearest office, where they can apply for the passport, (in some parts of Indonesia, this can involve very long journeys)so once again the services of an agent are advantageous in these circumstances.

    Good luck to your friend.

    Just want to add that BesarRahasia's response is spot on. She does know of what she speaks. By all means consider the use of an agent to do this. There are just to many pitfalls in doing this on your own. Official figures are correct, but I agree, that it is only half the story. Good luck.

    Depends on the agent and where in Indonesia they are, Bali tends to be more expensive than other parts of Indonesia, Surabaya is one of the cheapest places to apply, budget for around 700,000 Rupiah for everything including all photocopied of documents needed,
