Send one of the following when you apply for a passport:
- a Gender Recognition Certificate
- a new birth or adoption certificate showing your acquired gender
- a letter from your doctor or medical consultant confirming your change of gender is likely to be permanent
If you’re sending a letter from your doctor or medical consultant and you’re changing your name, you’ll also need to supply both of the following:
- evidence of your change of name (such as a deed poll)
- evidence that you’re using your new name (for example a payslip, or a letter from your local council)
