Visa's Numerics Initiative

The electronification of payments is more successful than ever anticipated. To address the industry shortage in supply, the International Organization of Standards (ISO) has expanded the length of issuing BINs from 6 to 8 digits. Visa is supporting this change to fuel innovation of the payment ecosystem.




Get ready for April 2022

The 8-digit BIN expansion is coming. Contact your Visa representative for more information about what you can do to prepare now.
