The word visa is a Latin derivative “charta visa,” and it means “paper which has been seen.” In immigration context a Visa is a conditional authorization granted by a country to allow a foreign national to enter the country, remain within, or to leave that country, according to its stipulated terms.
A Visa is, generally, obtained at an embassy or consulate outside the destination country. Obtaining a Visa is not an automatic guarantee of permission to enter the country, which has issued it.
