Legal, but requires surgery
Moldovan law allows for legal gender change only after ‘change of sex’. So far this has been interpreted as biological / surgical change of sex. In 2011, four individuals had successfully changed gender in law in Moldova since independence. After biological / surgical change of sex, the Moldovan Ministry of Information and Technology will issue a certificate stating that the person has changed sex. With this certificate it is possible to change all other official documents (passport, birth certificate, ID card etc).
