Any person who was born in Tasmania, who has undergone sexual reassignment surgery and is not married, may apply to register a change of sex.
If the person is a child, the parents or legal guardian may apply to register a change of sex.
To apply you must lodge the following documentation with the Registry of Births, Deaths & Marriages:
If the original birth certificate is supplied with the application, a replacement will be produced containing the new details and a notation that the person was previously registered as of the other sex.
If requested by the person, the Registrar may issue a Birth Extract, which does not include the notations.
For additional information about this process, please contact the Registrar of Births, Deaths and Marriages.
Please Note: Change of Name is a separate process.
