We’re a trusted network and world leader in digital payments, with a mission to remove barriers and connect more people to the global economy. Because we believe that economies that include everyone, everywhere uplift everyone, everywhere.
Our journey begins in 1958, the year that Bank of America launched the first consumer credit card program in the U.S. We expanded internationally in 1974 and introduced the debit card in 1975. In 2007, regional businesses around the world were merged to form Visa Inc. and, in 2008, the company went public in one of the largest IPOs in history.
Today, we operate in more than 200 countries and territories with products and services available on cards, laptops, tablets, mobile devices and more. We continue to evolve, *but our vision remains the same–to be the best way to pay and be paid, for everyone, everywhere.
