Visa has opened 55 blue and white porcelain tourist information kiosks throughout Beijing to provide multilingual information services to cardholders and international visitors traveling to China for the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games.

The Visa kiosks - found at the Beijing Capital International Airport (BCIA), Olympic venues and key tourist and shopping areas - are themed with the same blue and white brush stroke and traditional signature seal designs found on dozens of Olympic-themed Visa ATMs, making them easy for Visa cardholders to recognize.

Upon arrival at BCIAs newly-constructed Terminal 3, a Visa kiosk will greet international visitors with information related to Olympic events and venues, tourist attractions and Beijings public transportation facilities during the Games. In addition to the kiosk found at Terminal 3, Visa has installed kiosks throughout BCIA offering information about on-site emergency services should they lose their Visa card or need medical assistance.

Richard Chang, Executive Vice President and General Manager of Greater China and the Philippines for Visa said, This may be the first visit to China for many of the visitors arriving for the Games, and we recognize that with so many events happening in the 17-day Games period, the public will need accurate information quickly and in a language they know and understand. We worked with BOCOG to design these eye-catching kiosks to ensure that visitors to the Games would be able to easily identify these resources.
