The Embassy's Visa Unit processes applications for both non-immigrant and immigrant visas to the United States.

Nonimmigrant visas are required for travelers who wish to visit, work or study for a temporary period. The type of visa required will depend on the purpose of your travel. 

Visa Waiver Program (VWP) Citizens of the 36 countries participating in the Visa Waiver Program (VWP) may be eligible to travel to the United States visa free under the VWP if they are traveling for business, pleasure or are in transit, and they meet all the requirements.  

Immigrant Visas are required for anyone who wishes to enter the United States to reside there permanently, whether or not that person plans to seek employment in the United States.
