Please do share more re this. I'm very interested what's needed, it may be my most viable option.

I will update once process is done bez"h. It should be noted that I have no army duties, haven't lived in Israel as an adult so I believe no Bituach Leumi or any other financial obligations.

For now I do have some tips on how to get a birth certificate with an Apostille in one day in NYC (it's time consuming and annoying, but doable and you know you have the documents you need in hand, not relying on mail or bureaucratic turnaround. Obviously needing to get 11 of those is more of an incentive to spend the time).
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

It was re the Lithuanian citizenship. I live in the Holy Land and have no benefit from renouncing.

Oh. I am in the process of getting all the documents (will them work on translations). My biggest delay is probably getting a birth certificate with Apostille from South Africa. I believe I have everything else in place.

Searching Jewishgen.org came up with Lithuanian Internal Passport applications for my ancestors, along with specific Archive/Fond/Inventory/File information. I emailed the Lithuanian Central State Archive, got a quote for the copies, sent funds (don't use regular bank wire, in my case I needed to pay 4.80 EUR, and their bank charged them more than that in incoming wire fees, I then sent the funds using wise.com) and had copies in a couple of days.

Never participated, and I wouldn't be there on ר"ח חשון to participate.

Can't get rid of it soon enough (though with the latest news from Europe, I'm not sure Lithuania will still exist as an independent nation by the time I get all the documents I need to get my citizenship there, so that I have a second passport).
Why do you have to give it up?

Taxation without representation. It has cost me money and time throughout the years with no benefit.

Why wouldn't I? Should I keep it for the theoretical benefit of being able to travel to Russia without needing an expensive visa?

Of all the posters on the forum that are likely to travel to Russia, I'd guess you're probably in the top 5% at least.

Good luck... BTDT
Home Affairs and the SA embassy in NY is a complete mess
they claim 6 month turnaround (which IMHO is crazy as it is ) ends up being much more, if at all IME

Did the NYC one, (for someone else) had to go to two or three offices downtown and got it right away

If only SA allowed LT citizens without having to apply for a visa, as not eligible for visa on arrival.

I mailed in my paperwork to the SA consulate. I also asked a cousin in SA to try and obtain, but not hanging hopes on that.

Any other suggestions on getting the SA birth certificate with Apostille? A country like SA surely should have some machers that can get it done for a few $ within a reasonable timeframe.

NYC Apostille is doable in one day if you know what you're doing and get the birth certificates with letter of exemplification early enough (and not on a Wednesday) to go to the county clerk and the to the DOS in the same day.

1. We'll cross that bridge when we reach it.
2. We have some connections (at the moment).

זקן המשגיחים: “לפני ביאת המשיח הרשעים לא יצליחו להרכיב ממשלה”
גדול המשגיחים בדורינו: “אתם חושבים שיהיה ממשלה? אני  אומר לכם שלא תהיה ממשלה”. בדרשתו ציטט מהגמרא בסנהדרין

פרסום ראשון: הגאון הצדיק רבי דן סגל שנחשב לאחד מגדולי המשגיחים בדורינו התבטא כי “הרשעים לא יצליחו להקים ממשלה”, אמר גדול המשגיחים, “אתם חושבים שיהיה ממשלה? אני  אומר לכם שלא תהיה ממשלה”.

ואיך אני יודע? שאל המשגיח הצדיק, וציטט מהגמ’ בסנהדרין אמר רבי חמא בר חנינא אין בן דוד בא עד שתכלה מלכות הזלה מישראל. הוא ציטט את רש”י שפירש את דברי הגמרא: עד שתכלה מלכות הזלה – שלא תהא להם שום שולטנות לישראל אפילו שולטנות קלה ודלה

I am thinking that it might actually be good if the RL"B camp brings up the law stating that a person with an outstanding indictment may not become prime minister.

They will just further expose their Bolshevik anti-democratic nature, the law should not withstand legal challenges (though with the way the current Israeli legal system runs, one never knows).
