Diplomats can still obtain visas for their partners if they get married, including if they do so while in the United States.
Alfonso Nam, president of UN-GLOBE, a group that advocates on behalf of the U.N.'s LGBTI employees, toldThe Washington Blade that the new rule would "have a chilling effect on all couples in the United States under a U.N. -sponsored visa who are in legal unions other than marriage".
"Those not yet in the country will need to show they're married to secure a visa, potentially forcing those living in countries without marriage equality to choose between a posting at the United Nations headquarters or family separation", Akshaya Kumar of Human Rights Watchsaid in a blog post.
They can conduct a same-sex marriage overseas, but face being imprisoned in some countries, travel alone, or break up with their partner.
Married same-sex spouses - like opposite-sex spouses - will still be eligible to enter the country, but it remains illegal in most countries around the world for same-sex couples to Wednesday.

Individuals will be eligible for "limited exceptions" if they can prove they are from countries that outlaw same-sex partners, said Stephen Schlesinger, a fellow at the Century Foundation, a think tank.
Critics said the policy could pose a problem in countries that do not recognize same-sex marriages.
There are now 71 countries that criminalise same-sex relations, according to the International Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans and Intersex Association (ILGA).
"The change in policy ensures consistent treatment between opposite-sex partners and same-sex partners by requiring that same-sex partners, like opposite-sex partners, must marry to qualify for derivative diplomatic visas", the official said.
"Requiring a marriage as proof of bona fide partnership is a bad and cruel policy, one that replicates the awful discrimination many LGBT people face in their own countries", she said.
