The Gender Reassignment Act 2000 requires the Board to be satisfied based on information provided by the applicant, that the applicant has adopted the lifestyle and gender characteristics of the gender to which the person has reassigned and has received proper counselling in relation to this gender identity. Other legislative requirements may relate to age, identity, your location of birth, your current residency and location of reassignment procedure.

For these legislative requirements to be met, an applicant submitting an application to the Board will need to submit the following documentation:

The fee to apply for a certificate must be paid when you apply. The current fee is on the application form. The fee can be waived in demonstrated cases of hardship.

What if I don’t have all the documentation?

If you have concerns that your documentation does not meet the legislative requirements, please contact the Board. You may then be given information about what is required or you could have the opportunity to explain at the meeting in person the reasons for the lack of documentation. It will then be up to the Board to decide whether there is sufficient evidence to issue a recognition certificate.

What happens to my information?

No person connected with the Board is permitted to divulge any information about an application, except as required in the course of that person's official duties.
