In a meeting with Embassy staff at the U.S. Embassy in London, Secretary of State John Kerry has announced that the Department of State would treat same-sex married couples as equal to other married couples. Kerry stated:
If you are the spouse of a U.S. citizen, your visa application will be treated equally. If you are the spouse of a non-citizen, your visa application will be treated equally. And if you are in a country that doesn’t recognize your same-sex marriage, then your visa application will still be treated equally at every single one of our 222 visa processing centers around the world. Now, as long as a marriage has been performed in a jurisdiction that recognizes it so that it is legal, then that marriage is valid under U.S. immigration laws, and every married couple will be treated exactly the same.
