Identification & Official Documents

Tip: If you simply want identification with your chosen name and gender marker, the easiest way is to:
1. Change the name on your birth certificate (by statutory declaration)
2. Use the updated birth certificate to get a passport with your chosen name and gender marker/

The gender marker on you passport can be changed by statutory declaration – it does not need to match the gender marker on your birth certificate. On your passport, you have three options for the gender marker – F, M, or X (unspecified). You cannot have X as the marker on your birth certificate.
