Immigrant Visas (IV)
Note – We accept immigrant visa cases for applicants residing full-time in our consular district – the Republic of Djibouti. We will not accept cases in which the beneficiary cannot show proof of Djiboutian residency. The U.S. Embassy in Nairobi has been designated as the primary processing post for Somali applicants. Please visit the U.S Embassy in Nairobi for more information.
An immigrant visa is required of anyone who wishes to enter the United States to reside there permanently, whether or not that person plans to seek employment in the U.S. For more information about visas including diversity lottery programs please visit the Department of State's web site at travel.state.gov.
