Hello Mr. Nhat Van,

First of all, SG VISA would like to congratulate you and your loved ones for overcoming all the prejudices of society so that they can work together to build a dream of a happy life in America. SG VISA also understands and understands his desire to reunite for the past 10 years in particular and the gay community in the world at large.

Homosexuals have a common desire to be recognized by society. They also want to live a normal life as normal people. However, social stigma is still a major barrier for them. Homosexuals, transgender people are also human but they are being abandoned by society or by their own families. In Vietnam and in many countries now, even in family law, the law against domestic violence does not provide protection for gay people, and this is a huge disadvantage for them.

In recent years, gay marriage has become more open and unfamiliar to us, especially for developed countries like the United States, Canada, Brazil, some European countries, …

Referring to the United States, on June 26, the United States Supreme Court declared the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) to re-establish marriage as a union of two individuals. This move has opened a new direction for gay couples wishing to marry and live in the United States, specifically the states where their homosexual marriages are recognized. These states include: California, Connecticut, Delaware, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, New Hampshire, New York, Rhode Island, Vermont, Washington, DC American tribes, and some other states.

In addition, same-sex couples will also enjoy benefits such as inheritance rights and apply to all federal benefits such as taxes, Social Security payments, including medical and maternity benefits. karma (welfare). Thus, this decision was praiseworthy and paved the way for radical changes in the United States.

At present, the law on homosexuality is very different in many countries around the world. In Asia, same-sex marriage is still a matter of debate, and no country has yet agreed on this. If Mr. Nhat Van wants to sponsor a gay lover in Vietnam, some options can help him or her like traveling to the United States for study or travel, then marry in a city court or courthouse. government departments have the responsibility and authority in the locality, and return to Vietnam waiting for the US Consulate General’s visa processing procedures. The review of the US Consulate in Vietnam may be less severe than the US Department of Immigration in this case.

Or, US citizens can file a fiancé’s affidavit in the fiancée without having to register their marriage in Vietnam, because in Viet Nam the law does not allow gay people to register their marriage. This means that you will not be able to sponsor your spouse. The first step to filing a fiancé / fiancé petition is to complete and file the I-129F, as this is the best option for gay couples. After all procedures are completed, the beneficiary can come to the United States and register the marriage for 90 days, and then process the green card for permanent resident status.

Gay marriage is a new area of ​​immigration law, but according to US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) officials, these applications will be treated fairly as other visa applications. -different

Regular applications typically take 6 to 11 months. However, USCIS officials are also ordinary people and some may still hesitate to accept views on same-sex marriage. Due to this, there will be very well reviewed petitions, the time may be longer than other normal records.

Eight months ago, SG VISA has received a case where a customer is Dong, he has love Thanh and two people have known each other for more than 15 years, since Thanh has not yet arrived in the United States. Although life is still difficult, Thanh often come back to visit Dong, meeting several months or sometimes only a few weeks as Thanh must fly to the United States for work not allowed to stay. Vietnam for a long time. In the past 10 years, Dong has been interviewing three tourist visas and all three were denied.

In these lonely and desperate moments, the gay couple found SG VISA. This is also the time when the US Supreme Court ruled out the ban on gay marriage. Our impression of meeting Dong for the first time is a man who has gone through middle age but is still very much embarrassed, prejudging the thousands of years of Vietnamese culture that made our conversation between us. The head is not very smooth. However, after listening to Dong’s dreams and aspirations over the years, as well as exchanging with him on the phone, we fully understood and appreciated the relationship between them and advised them. New American government promulgation, which allows all gay people to sponsor their spouse through a bride / groom. SG VSIA has assisted them in submitting the required forms (Form I-129F, G-325A, G-1145) and attaching proof of the actual relationship current account, bill of exchange, telephone bill showing contact with each other, chat times through yahoo, gmail … as the instructions of SG VISA.

Currently, Dong’s profile has been approved by USCIS and we are working to help Mr. Dong, Mr. Dang to apply for financial assistance and prepare to answer questions for the upcoming visa interview.

In theory, the above steps will help gay couples get a chance to reunite in the United States, but it will be very difficult to persuade USCIS that the intimate relationship between two homosexual couples leads to legitimate marriage. , and this relationship has been established in the past not for the purpose of settlement, being maintained for true love and will continue to grow in the future for marriage in the United States. This challenge is also the result of hundreds of thousands of Vietnamese citizens who have taken advantage of the marriage law to enjoy immigration and settlement benefits in the United States for many years. With all the immigration experience and enthusiasm, SG VISA will try to help current gay couples and gay couples later in Vietnam obtain the US visa easiest.

As adults in the United States, we have civilized and open perspectives with the gay community because SG VISA believes that everyone has the right to build a dream and a happy couple life. We also believe that only deep sympathy with new customers is the key to our success.
