US Immigration Update

On March 31, 2023, US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) updated its policy regarding self-identified gender markers on forms and documents. Gender marker selection is no longer required to match the gender indicated on supporting documents.

USCIS Policy Update for Gender Markers on Forms

People requesting benefits no longer need to submit proof of their gender identity when submitting a request to change their gender marker, except for those submitting Form N-565, Application for Replacement Naturalization/Citizenship Document.

Currently, the only gender markers available are “Male” (M) or “Female” (F). The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is working on options to include an additional gender marker (“X”) for another or unspecified gender identity. USCIS will update its forms and the Policy Manual accordingly.
