Hello @behravesh

Welcome to the Dropbox Community! grinning face

This type of file cannot be previewed in the Dropbox mobile app. Check out the files you can preview from your mobile device, clicking here.

These type of files need to be exported to be previewed locally in your device.

Dropbox isn't capable of viewing Visio files. In fact, Dropbox utilizes the viewers built-in to iOS, so it's iOS that isn't capable of it. You'll need to install Microsoft's Visio Viewer app from the App Store, then open the file in that app.
