There are a number of simple and easy ways for customers who do not currently have a Visa card to obtain one. The easiest way to obtain a Visa card is to contact your existing bank which will be able to help you select and apply for the Visa card that most suits your needs. Alternatively, anyone can purchase a Visa prepaid card from a Visa card issuer. A Visa prepaid card can be used immediately. Please visit the Visa website for details.
