The “cedula” is the official identification document in Costa Rica.

QCOSTARICA – Adults in Costa Rica who want to change their sex designation on their cedula, the Costa Rica identification, may do so if a proposed bill is passed.

Sponsored by legislators of the Frente Amplio (FA) and Liberación Nacional (PLN), the first draft of the bill called Ley de Reconocimiento de los Derechos a la Identidad de Género e Igualdad ante la Ley (Law of Recognition of Rights and Gender Identity Equality before the law), was presented for public opinion on Monday.

Frente Amplio legislator, Patricia Mora, explained that the initiative aims to respect the right of human dignity. The legislator noted that one change their name, so one should be also be able to change their sex designation.

The draft bill provides only adults can submit an application for change to the Civil Registry.

Mora did not explain the mechanism for the change in sex designation. For example, in the province of Ontario (Canada), required is a letter signed by a practicing physician or psychologist (including a psychological associate) authorized to practise in Canada that includes the statements necessary to support the request.
