The MRV[Machine Readable Visa] shall, as a minimum, contain the data specified herein in a form that is legible both visually and by optical character recognition methods..”

Further, defining that “Sex of MRV-A[Format A - Machine Readable Visa] holder, when included, is to be specified by use of the single initial commonly used in the language of the State of issue. If translation into English, French or Spanish is necessary, followed by an oblique and the capital letter F for female, M for male, or X for unspecified.”
