DS-160, confusing question before starting

Hi and thank you in advance...

Im confused as exactly what DS-160 online form has to be filled out. After obtaining our NVC case number I went to the visa check page " Visa Status Check " and its talking about an Immigrant visa.

U.S. Department of State

Another instruction page I've found helpful says to:

Complete Form DS-160, Online "Nonimmigrant" Visa Application.

Nonimmigrant is for temporary stay and immigrant is for permanent residency. So why am I being told to do a NONimmigrant? I need to be 100% sure before starting this... Can anyone shed some light on what I am suppose to do?


- Trying to get K-1 visa ready to send out soon for Ailyn and I.

- 04/21/2015 mailed 1-129F visa packet to Dallas Lock bock. will be there tomorrow.

K1 is a nonimmigrant visa technically, because it is only good for 90 days. But it is processed as an immigrant visa because the final intent is immigration.

And yes you need to complete the ds160.
