To check a Visa balance online, first visit the website of the credit card issuer, and locate the login field, explains About.com. Next, login to the Visa account using the correct username and password, and view the current balance of the account.
After logging into an online Visa account, the remaining credit appears on the same page as the present account balance. Additionally, the due date and amount of the next minimum payment are visible. The online Visa account typically allows you to view a history of your most recent transactions and provides the option to download a PDF format of past statements, according to About.com.
If you are a first-time account user, you must create an online account on the credit card issuer’s website. To determine the website address of the Visa card’s issuer, look on the back of the credit card or on the card's account statement. Another way to find out this website address is to call the customer service number listed on the back of your credit card, states About.com.
To create an account, select the Enroll or Register field, and enter the requested information, according to About.com. Depending on the data requirements of the credit card’s issuer, information necessary for account creation often includes personal identification and a chosen password and username. To protect against fraud, make the chosen password difficult for someone else to guess.
