You need to apply to the Family Court for a declaration before you can change the gender on your NZ birth certificate. If your application is successful, the Family Court will notify Births, Deaths and Marriages.
If you are living with a different gender identity than the one on your birth certificate, you can ask for your citizenship certificate to show your new gender.
If you’ve changed your gender, or if your gender has been wrongly recorded, you can update your official identification. You can record your gender as M (male), F (female) or X (gender diverse).
