Nonimmigrant visas are for people visiting the U.S. temporarily for tourism, business, education, medical treatment, or petition-based employment. The type of visa required depends on your purpose of travel.
Immigrant visas are for applicants planning to permanently relocate to the United States. The U.S. Embassy in Managua adjudicates all categories of immigrant visas. We encourage all applicants to learn as much as they can about the laws, regulations and policies involved in processing an immigrant visa application.
