The Visa Global Registry of Service Providers contains information on service providers that are registered with Visa and have met Visa program requirements within Asia Pacific, Canada, Central Europe, Middle East, Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean, and the U.S. The Registry contains service provider information such as company name, company website, corporate headquarter country, region(s) of operation, types of services offered and PCI DSS compliance validation date.
It serves as a platform where service providers can broadcast their compliance with Visa Inc. rules and any applicable PCI DSS requirements. This channel allows service providers to promote their services to potential clients worldwide and differentiate themselves from other service providers. Visa clients and merchants reference the registry to select registered and compliant service providers for outsourcing their payment-related services.
