Transgender passport resources: international

IMPORTANT: If your country allows transgender people to get an M or F gender marker, I recommend getting one of those two options, even if you can get a third gender option. Some countries may not allow you to enter using a passport with a third gender designation.

For more on why you need a passport, see: Transgender passport resources

  • In 2014, the Supreme Court of India ordered that transgender people be recognised as a third gender. They ordered accommodations for identity documents including voter card, ration card, driving licence, and passport. Passports allow the option “T” as a gender marker. If possible, try to get an “M” or “F.”
