Changing your gender
Change the registered sex on your birth certificate
To change the registered sex on your birth certificate you must apply to the Family Court. They will will make a declaration (legal statement) as to your nominated sex, and notify Births, Deaths and Marriages.
Choose the gender on your citizenship record
If your gender is different to the one on your birth certificate, you can ask for your citizenship certificate to show your new gender (if you have not yet applied for citizenship), or request an evidentiary certificate (if you have been granted citizenship).
Change your gender on your official ID
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).
