As an international payment technology company, Visa is making every effort to create the conditions necessary for the launch of new payment services in Azerbaijan, Visa’s Regional Manager for the Caucasus Cristina Doros told Report.

According to Doros, one of the main directions for Visa is to create an infrastructure for the development of contactless, including tokenized, payments.
