Your Visa card account
Visa does not retain any details of financial transactions that you may have undertaken using your Visa payment card – these are kept and managed by your Visa credit or debit card issuer.
To access your account information, please contact your Visa card issuer. You will find their address and/or telephone number on your Visa statement. The telephone number may also appear on the back of the card itself. You can also locate your card issuer and click through to their website for more information.

Your payment experience is incredibly important to us. Merchants who display the Visa logo are not permitted to choose whether or not to accept a Visa card for payment if the customer is acting in good faith.
Visa has over 16,000 financial institution clients that issue their own Visa cards and sign up merchants to accept them. These institutions set the terms and conditions for their merchant relationships and, therefore, handle all customer service matters relating to them.
We recommend that you notify your Visa card issuer using the customer support number appearing on your Visa statement or the back of your Visa card. Your Visa card issuer has access to the appropriate Visa rules and regulations, as well as the Notification of Customer Complaint forms to file complaints.
Safety + Security

Visa is working with financial institutions, merchants and law enforcement agencies worldwide to ensure that there is no confusion as the new card design is introduced.
No. Visa is working with financial institutions, merchants and law enforcement agencies worldwide to ensure that there is no confusion as the new card design is introduced.

Be aware of any email message that requests personal data—such as passwords, PINs or your social security number—or sends you to a website that asks for such information. These messages may involve the illegal practice of “spoofing”, or forging an email address to resemble another legitimate address and business. Remember to never send personal information via an email. If you have received an email that spoofs Visa, please notify Visa of the specifics of the illegal email.
It is important for consumers to know that Visa will not call or email cardholders to request their personal account information. Visa call centres do not initiate outbound telemarketing calls. Consumers should not respond to any emails or phone calls with requests for any personal card information and are advised to immediately report the situation to local law enforcement as well as the financial institution that issued their card. Cardholders should also know that Visa's Zero Liability fraud policy ensures that they are not held responsible for any unauthorised purchases.
Visa’s Zero Liability policy does not apply to certain commercial card and anonymous prepaid card transactions or transactions not processed by Visa. Cardholders must use care in protecting their card and notify their issuing financial institution immediately of any unauthorised use. Contact your issuer for further details.

Visa has grown from a credit card company to a payments company that offers a range of payment products and services. The new Visa logo and card design reflect the evolution of Visa.
The current logo began appearing on Visa cards as well as in advertising, marketing and online communications in January 2006. Visa cards and communications with the current Visa Brand Mark will coexist with cards and communications that feature the Visa Flag until 30 June 2011.
