Tourist v/s immigrant:
Visiting another country for a short period of time is changed from thinking of permanently settling there. Someone traveling to another country with the purpose of waiting for a short time is often named as a tourist.
Different countries have different laws and trials pertaining to obtaining various clearances for allowing citizens of other countries to visit it. Different visas are supplied for different visiting or continuing purposes, such as a tourist visa, business visa, H1 B1 or B2 visa and so on.
Citizenship and immigration:
Let us take an example of US immigration. Those who are citizens of the country have a right to vote and have a US passport. Those who are staying the country for a holiday, visiting family or work related business have different visas which allow their entry and stay in the country.
The people visiting on visas are not citizens of the country and do not have a US passport. They would have a passport of their own country.
