Submit a request to Idaho’s Bureau of Vital Records and Health Statistics to amend your birth certificate.
You are not required to provide a medical document to amend the gender marker on your Idaho birth certificate.
To apply for an updated Idaho birth certificate, you will need to provide:
- signed and notarized Application to Change the Indicator of Sex to Reflect Gender Identity form (PDF)
- complete Certificate Request form (PDF)
- copy of government-issued photo ID
- payment of applicable fee(s)
Idaho passed a law in 2020 that would have restricted gender marker changes on the state’s birth certificates. This law was deemed unconstitutional by a federal district court. The state cannot prevent transgender individuals from changing the gender marker on their birth certificate.
Note: You must update your birth certificate with the state where you were born.
