U.S.C.I.S. Removes Surgical Requirement for Updating Immigration Documents


On April 13th, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services issued a Policy Memorandum removing the surgical requirement for updating the sex designation on immigration documents. The new guidance is modeled on the U.S. State Department's updated policy on passport sex marker changes.
