FAQ - Form DS-11

How does a transgender woman demonstrate that she is truly a woman for the purpose of college admission?
In general the requirement for this would be for a legal identity document that signifies gender. In the US, Birth Certificate, Driver’s License, or a Passport would all likely be accepted. Policies will, of course, vary by institution.What it takes to update each of those documents is also highly varied. If it were me, right now, my target document would be a passport. Passports are powerful, they’re federal, and you can use them to not only prove identity but to prove citizenship which is frequently necessary when you’re looking for work. Most importantly though, the US passport requirements to update your gender marker are reasonable.RequirementsYou must apply using Form DS-11, unless you are replacing a limited-validity passport in your correct gender (see below). In addition to the regularly-required documents*, submit the following:ID that resembles your current appearancePassport photo that resembles your current appearanceA medical certification that indicates you are in the process of or have had appropriate clinical treatment for gender transitionProof of legal name change (if applicable)*See Apply in Person for all regularly-required passport documents.Medical CertificationA signed, original statement from a licensed physician must be on office letterhead and include:Physician’s full name, address, and telephone numberMedical license or certificate numberIssuing state or other jurisdiction of medical license/certificateLanguage stating that:He or she has a doctor/patient relationship with youHe or she has treated you or has reviewed and evaluated your medical historyYou have had, or are in process of having, appropriate clinical treatment for transition to the updated gender (male or female)The statement must include, “I declare under penalty of perjury under the laws of the United States that the forgoing is true and correct.”[1]I want to zero in for a second on “appropriate clinical treatment for gender transition.” What does that mean? Does it mean hormones? Does it mean surgery? Does it mean any surgery or just genital surgery? Does it mean therapy? Answer: Yes.The WPATH standards of care make it clear that not every available medical intervention is appropriate for every case of gender dysphoria. A person may not experience genital dysphoria or they may find that hormones in combination with a social transition are sufficient to their needs. The decision of what’s appropriate for a given individual is made by exactly the right people: the individual and their doctor. The State Department will take the doctor’s word on it.For other documents like a drivers license or a birth certificate, in the US, you’re looking at individual state laws and each state is free to set their own standards. In some states, it isn’t possible for a trans person to gain legal recognition of their gender identity. That’s why I point to passports.Updating identity documents is hard. Only 11% of trans people in the US have updated all of their identity documents. Meanwhile the vast majority (68%) haven’t been able to update any of their documents. Doctors cost money, hormones cost money, and providers can be thin on the ground. To the uninitiated who’s never had to navigate the required government bureaucracy it might seem trivial. If a case study helps to understand, here’s my experience:When I started HRT I started by getting a list of endocrinologists who would accept my health insurance. Then I started calling to see if any of them would accept trans patients for HRT. Some of them just said ‘no.‣ One clinic (eight doctors) wouldn’t talk to me, they wanted to speak to my primary care provider for a referral. I didn’t have one but my therapist called in a referral. They told her what they wouldn’t tell me: Only one of their doctors would see trans patients, and he only treated trans men. Another hospital had decided that because they didn’t have a complete trans health program, they didn’t want to be a “hormone mill” and I couldn’t get care there either.I wound up seeing a naturopath (N.D. instead of M.D.) My insurance wouldn’t cover a naturopath so I paid her out of pocket. She wrote my prescriptions under “general endocrine disorder” so that my insurance would at least cover those (my policy specifically excluded gender affirming care.) When I went to Social Security to update my name and gender marker I had a court order for name change and a letter from my doctor. They wouldn’t take the letter because she wasn’t an M.D. or D.O. I told my doc, she said that she’d been having that problem with providing letters and that she could refer me to an M.D. who would write me a letter after an intake exam for about $250. For an exam I didn’t need, with a doctor I’d never see again to get a letter I already had that was signed by someone with a slightly different credential.I work in tech, I’m white, college educated, middle class, married and I live in a progressive urban area. That puts me ahead of a lot of trans people. So when I say that I had trouble getting through the process, stop for a moment and ask what that would have been like if I’d grown up to work on the family farm in Elk City Oklahoma. I’ll let you Google that to find the nearest provider of gender affirming care and how far away that is.Identity documents are a big freaking deal. Not having proper identity documents puts you at all kinds of risk. Imagine being a bearded guy named Jim who has to present ID that shows a woman in makeup named Jane every time you stop at the store for a bottle of wine. Imagine getting pulled over for a busted tail light in the same situation only this time your drivers license doesn’t match the registration on your car (yes, I have a mismatch on my registration and my drivers license. Strangely enough the DMV would give me new ID with a letter from my doctor but I can’t update the registration without a conference call with the bank that issued my car loan.) Now imagine being a black trans woman with a name that doesn’t match the registration on the vehicle when you get pulled over‣ how likely is it for that person to wind up in jail for “stealing” her own car. How likely is she to be placed in a men’s jail? How likely is she to be shot?Identity documents are important and the process for trans people to update their documents isn’t uniform from state to state, from government agency to government agency or even within the same government agency (seriously DMV?)But for getting into college, more likely than not, it’s going to take some form of updated ID and right now, the best shot for many trans people in the US is to update their passport.Footnotes[1] Gender Designation Change
What can you do if your passport is lost or stolen while you're in a foreign country?
This happen with me in Barcelona, Nov 2017My Barcelona story: Adventure or worst nightmare !London(Can I enter?), Spain(if I have to stay), India(Go and come back)So, I was at the Nova Icaria Beach enjoying the cool breeze with my friends, we were having gala time. It was evening time, and then, 2 young boys passed by, they went till the tip of the beach and while returning one of the boy started interacting with us, he asked do you have cigarettes, and made us busy in conversation. It was just 2 mins then, I turned my face around to check my bag, and it was not there. Within fraction of second, I realised it was plot and I m being looted.This starts the worst nightmare for an #Indian travelling from #London to #Barcelona. Bag had my Indian passport. I ran to the road side, asking people if they saw 2 boys in black running with a bag, people here only understand Spanish. I tried to explain people with actions, one family said they saw boys with bag running towards the road. I came at the road side, there was no one there. I asked one person sitting on a bike for help. Police number, police number I asked him. He dialed 112 on my another phone, and told police that I have been looted here. I continued my search, I saw security guards and ran to them, explained them, he called other security guard, then started searching the nearby area. My friends on the other side were also in touch with other security guards near the beach. It was dark now, we all traced the route back from where we sat. Near the garden we found my sweater, driving license, medicines etc. But I was not able to find my passport. I had only one thing in my mind “Passport”. We kept our search on, hoping to find my passport, iPhone etc. By the time, I got call from tourist police in Barcelona, they were speaking in Spanish. I gave the phone to the security guards, we noted the address. And ran to the nearest police station. The police told the translator has left for the day. Come in morning and file an FIR.I was totally blank. Lucky I had my Biometric Resident Permit (BRP). I called my friends in London and asked for advice and help. I emailed my company’s manger for help. It was Saturday, evening time, he was quick enough to respond and provided me the global emergency numbers, I called the SOS team on the hotline, its real issue, they said, they took the Security Specialist team in conference. They guided me for the next steps.1. Police FIR for the stolen bag.2. Indian embassy in Spain.3. British embassy in Spain.4. Airlines (took on conference)5. Visa and immigration authorities.6. Indian embassy in London.I called the emergency number of Indian embassy, the gentleman said, without passport, neither border security forces nor airlines will allow you to enter London. You need to call the British embassy in Spain for assistance. If they can prthe letter. (Very unlikely)I called the British embassy help line number, since it was Saturday, everything was closed. There was one option to call the global emergency helpline number for British passport holders only. I choose that option and then it went to highest authority in London for emergency. I said I have BRP and will have police FIR. They said, 1st you are not British citizen, second you can’t entry London without passport, call Indian embassy for a official letter, which will help you to enter London.Today morning, we went to the police station and got the FIR done. I asked if I can enter London with the BRP and this FIR report. They said it’s all at the discretion of Airlines, Embassy, Border security forces, Visa and immigration department.I again called the Indian embassy in Spain, they said they can’t issue any letter, you can come to Madrid on Monday, where their is Indian embassy. Apply for emergency passport, it will take 7-8 days. At that time, I thought I am in real trouble now.There were three options left with me:1. Go to Madrid, apply for emergency Indian passport. Stay here for 8 days.2. Go India, apply for Tatlak passport and come back to London.3. The riskiest, board the flight, if they allow with BRP. And then in London if the border security don’t allow, I will be deported to India.Now, after 10 hours of full stress talking to different people, I called my parents in India. I am left with these 3 options. They advised me to go according to rules of counties and keep calm.So, if any good can happen it will be at the airport only, I have my flight at 8:50 p.m. from Barcelona to London. I came at the airport around 2 p.m. I rushed to the airlines customer service team. I told I don’t have passport, but I have FIR and BRP. They refused immediately. But I guess, this was always the first 1st response. Then I explained them every damn thing all my talks with embassy and airlines. They understood my request and then listened. They took images of my BRP, FIR report, photocopy of passport, schengen Visa etc and sent to London embassy, security forces and immigration department. They told me to wait for 10 mins for their response.I went to them, after every 10 mins, it was now 1 hr. They pinged them again. After 1.5 hrs, she smiled and waved her hand. They got email from London, approving you coming to London, now you can check in.At that time, I called my parents and was all in tears, I then informed my friends here, Company managers.Currently, I am at Barcelona airport, to board my 8:50 pm flight. I pray to god that, I could pass all the security checks and enter London.Story of an Indian citizen, with british resident permit, currently in an schengen country without passport.
What do I do if my social security, birth certificate, and all forms if ID are lost?
Question: What do I do if my social security, birth certificate, and all forms if ID are lost?Make sure to report credit cards or smart cards immediately to protect yourself. To make this easier, create a document separate from credit cards and such listing the number to call and the card number. These numbers are listed on the back of each card, but if you lose the card and failed to record it elsewhere, it can make a tough situation even tougher. I keep a password protected document containing all this information on my computer and update it accordingly.Replace Lost DocumentsReplacing documents that were lost or destroyed in a flood, fire, or other disaster can be a daunting task. The process varies state to state, but your local Vital Records Office can help you sort out the process. There is often a fee to replace these documents.Vital records documents consist of birth, death, marriage, and divorce certificates. State government vital records offices issue these documents. To get a copy of a vital record document, contact the vital records office in the state where the event occurred. They will be able to help you replace records and direct you how to get other lost or destroyed documents.Government agencies usually mail replacement vital documents. But if your home was destroyed in a disaster, you might not be able to get your mail. You can either request a temporary change of address through the post office and designate the date when the forwarding should stop or visit your local post office and ask if you can pick up your mail there. When our house burned we did not have to forward our mail since we lived in a rural area with the mailboxes on the road so we just picked up our mail every day while checking on the rebuild progress of our house.Birth CertificateTo replace your birth certificate contact the vital records office in the state where you were born. A few states don’t require a government-issued photo ID, or they will accept other documents proving your identity. Some states allow your mother or father whose name is on the birth certificate to submit a notarized letter with a copy of their photo ID. If you need to have a photo ID replace your Drivers License or state issued ID first.For a certified copy of your birth certificate, contact the vital records office in the state where you were born for instructions on how to request a copy and information and the fees. I ordered mine from the county where I was born.If you were born to American parents abroad, your birth should be registered with the U.S. Embassy or consulate in that country. Your parents should have received a ConReport of Birth Abroad. You can get a copy of this report from the U.S. Department of State. Depending on the country, a vital records office in the nation may also list the birth.If you were born on a military base abroad, and your parents did not register your birth with the U.S. Embassy, you may have to contact the hospital where the birth took place. You may also try contacting the base operator or public affairs office for the appropriate military branch.State ID or Drivers LicenseReplace your driver’s license. This task varies state to state. In some states, you can do it online. I found it beneficial to replace my drivers license first since I had to drive everywhere. However with the new Real ID drivers license you will need your birth certificate and go in person to the local Secretary of State office.Social Security CardTo replace your Social Security card you’ll need a government-issued photo ID, getting a replacement card is free. Many states allow you to request a replacement social security card online.PassportReplace your passport. Report your lost or destroyed passport to the Department of State. To apply for a new passport, you’ll need to fill out a form DS-11 and go to a passport acceptance facility or agency. You’ll need your birth certificate or a certified copy, and a government-issued photo ID.Replace other important documents. Your state or local election office can tell you how to replace your voter registration card. Contact the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services to find out how to replace naturalization or citizenship documents.Student ID CardBe sure to deactivate your student ID if your school is set up for using your card to access school activities, library, computer labs, or meals. You must bring a government issued photo ID such as a US driver's license, passport or state ID. A replacement student ID usually has to be charged to the students account rather than by cash, debit or credit card.Marriage CertificateFor a certified copy of your marriage certificate, again, contact the vital records office in the state where you were married for instructions on how to request a copy and information on any fees.Even though the guidelines vary by state, all requests should include:Full names of both spouses at time of marriage,Month, day, and year of the marriage,Place of marriage (city or town, county, and state),Purpose for which copy of marriage certificate is needed,Relationship to persons whose marriage certificate is being requested,Daytime telephone number (include area code).Death CertificateYou can request a certified copy of a death certificate from the vital records office of the state or territory in which the death occurred. See the instructions for that state or territory for details such as fees, address to write to, and the required identification.In addition to your state’s requirements, all requests should contain:Full name of the person whose death certificate is being requested,Their sex,Their parents' names, including maiden name of their mother,Month, day, and year of their death,Place of death (city or town, county, and state; and name of hospital, if known/applicable),Purpose for which the copy is needed,Your relationship to the person whose record is being requested,Your daytime telephone number with area code.Permanent Resident (Green) CardsThe U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) can help you replace a lost or stolen permanent resident (green) card.Vital Records by State
What's the hardest part when you legally immigrate to the US?
Rahul Tiwari has covered a lot of the admin, so I'll mention something else: you won't exist in any of the US databases, like the credit reporting databases, that lubricate typical everyday transactions like renting an apartment, buying a car, getting a job, or buying a house. So you'll need to actively take steps to smooth that path.Before you leave: save as much money as you can. Bring it with you in cash in your hand baggage (don't forget to declare it at customs if it is $10,000. You don't have to pay a fee, just file the form). You are going to need it because you won't have access to any kind of credit for at least 12 months when you arrive in the US.When you arrive you will have no US credit record. The first thing to do is get a social security card and your social security number. Without those you don't exist. Then, you will find that most banks won't give you a bank account because you have no credit record. To get a credit record you need a bank account. See the problem?Your university or your employer can help you here if they are affiliated with a credit union. Credit Unions are like banks but are owned by their members, so they are much more helpful. In bigger cities with a lot of immigrants, credit unions are familiar with the challenges of having no credit record. So they will give you a bank account if you have cash with you ready to deposit and a social security number. You will have to fill out forms stating where you got the money, due to anti money-laundering laws.Next, you must get a credit card from the credit union, even if you don't think you will need one. This is so that the credit card company will report your credit to the major credit reporting databases, creating a record. Go to the credit union because your application will be rejected by regular credit card companies because you have no credit record yet. You may have to have a contingency card, where you deposit money in an account as security against what you spend on your credit card. That's why you brought that cash.Use the credit card, and pay the bill every month. After a year, a magical thing happens: you now have the minimum viable credit history to be considered for other credit, such a credit cards or car leases. You will get terrible interest rates because your rating will be low, but if you pay your bills on time it'll improve.But what if you need car before then? While you could just buy with cash, it is much better for your credit record if you get a car loan from the credit union so that also goes on your credit history.Because you have no credit record, utilities (electricity, gas, phone service) will demand a deposit from you when you first sign up for service. They are not allowed to refuse service by law, so this is how they protect themselves from a person with no credit history like yourself. After a year, they will give you back any remaining deposit.Many landlords also do a credit check on potential renters. Since you have no credit record, this will be a problem. Refer them to the credit union for proof that you have a bank account and as a comfort factor. Some landlords will make you pay a bigger deposit because you have no credit record ‣ that's why you brought that cash.Good luck and enjoy living in the US!
