Reports for Name / Gender Marker Change in Passports
The information you need to know about changing your name or gender marker on your passport, and how we can help to support this.
Name Change by Deed Poll, Passport Changes, and 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 (i.e., two letters are required 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.
