 VISA IS EVERYWHERE YOU WANT TO BE
 (AND SOME PLACES YOU NEVER HEARD OF)
 SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Planning a trip to Tanzania? A break in Bophuthatswana? A vacation in Vanuatu? Don't forget to pack your Visa card.
 Visa International has announced that Visa is now accepted in an all-time high of 205 countries, territories and possessions throughout the world, many of which weren't listed on any map a year ago. From Afghanistan to Zimbabwe, Visa has penetrated markets once considered too remote or obscure for credit card acceptance.
 "We've seen incredible growth in the number of countries and territories accepting Visa, especially in the Europe, Middle East, and Africa region," noted Charles T. Russell, president and CEO of Visa International. "The world has splintered into many more countries, territories and possessions, and Visa has customized services for merchants with different cultural needs."
 In recent consumer studies in the United States, Visa surpassed American Express for the first time as the top card for international travel, a milestone Visa attributes largely to its superior acceptance worldwide.
 Visa, with more than 10 million acceptance locations, is the world's largest consumer card payment system with more than 287 million cards issued, including 143 million in the United States. Visa also has the world's largest ATM network with more than 100,000 ATMs.
