In relation to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, Visa said, “Visa is in the process of complying with all applicable global sanctions. As part of that compliance, we have suspended access to Visa for certain clients. It is difficult to reasonably estimate the full potential financial impact of this situation on Visa at this time.”

“In fiscal full-year 2021, total net revenues from Russia, including revenues driven by domestic as well as cross-border activities, were approximately 4% of Visa net revenues and total net revenues from Ukraine were approximately 1% of Visa net revenues,” the company added.

California-based Visa facilitates electronic funds transfers through Visa-branded credit cards, debit cards and prepaid cards.
