How to change your gender by law
In order to change your gender by law you need to apply for a Gender Recognition Certificate.
There are two steps to change your gender by law:
- apply to the Royal Court of Jersey for a Gender Recognition Certificate
- once you have got your certificate we will enter you into the Gender Recognition Register
New birth certificate
After you have changed your gender by law, you can apply for a new birth certificate with your new gender and name on it.
We maintain a confidential link between the original birth record and the record in the Gender Recognition Register.
The Gender Recognition Register is not open to the public.
Make an appointment with us to start the application process. You need to bring your Gender Recognition Certificate and proof of identity with you.
There is no charge for the registration in the Gender Recognition Register, however the copy of your new birth certificate costs £30.
