US Embassy in Manila issues first 'fiance visa' to same-sex couple

This is good news for Filipinos who are married to their American partners.

From the Philippine Embassy website in the United States :

"On December 2, 2013, the United States Embassy in the Philippines issued its first fiancé visa to a same-sex couple. Although same-sex marriage is not yet recognized in the Philippines, gay Americans are now able to petition for family-based visas on behalf of their Filipino spouses, fiancés, and their children."
