Gay Partnership in Brazil?

With the recent news stating same-sex couples can get married in Brazil I wanted to share some light about how this affects those applying for Visas.

The Visa I applied for is Stable Union. This is Brazil’s version of ‘Marriage’ or ‘Civil-partnership.’ This, in our state, has been available to Same-sex couples for around a year now.

With it now being available through-out the country, it gives same-sex couples the same rights to apply for a visa as hetro-sexual couples. I’ve seen many different success stories already!

The biggest thing. Remember, everyone’s story is different. There is no consistency when applying for this Visa, and depending where you are applying, is dependant on what your told!

Congratulations to those states that didn’t have this Same-Sex partnership in place already! 🙂
