NAME CHANGE BY DEED POLL,

PASSPORT CHANGES,

&

GENDER RECOGNITION CERTIFICATES

Changing your gender status on a passport or obtaining a UK gender recognition certificate (GRC) usually requires a name change by deed poll and a report from a recognised gender specialist (two letters for a GRC).

 

Please note that the decision to issue the name/gender change in a passport or on a GRC resides with the Passport Office or the Gender Recognition Panel (GRP) and depends on qualifying criteria and completeness of the application. Please read application guidelines carefully before requesting a consultation.

Name change by Statutory Declaration or by Deed Poll does not require specialist input and can be done rather easily by anyone.
