By purchasing a license, banking institutions became part of the association of card issuers. The name Visa appeared only in 1976. Changing the name of the payment system was necessary to promote the services of the company in other countries. The Vietnam War hit the United States badly. Therefore, the name of the payment system was changed so that it was not associated with America.
