How To Get A US Visa For Someone From China
2012-05-07 06:49:00
  One of our clients recently asked for our help “making sure” it could get a U.S. visa for one of its China-based Chinese managers. The client wanted this manager to come to the United States for two months of training. Our client had heard from a friend in a similar situation that it was “getting near impossible” to get a visa for people from China “unless you do absolutely everything right.”  We have heard that the US Immigration Service pretty much assumes that the papers for everyone from China are fraudulent, and then puts the burden on them to prove otherwise.  To put it another way, it is tough — but not impossible — for Chinese nationals to get into the United States. So how do you increase the chances? Back in 2006, The Going Global Blog did a post on getting a U.S. visa for business purposes, entitled, “What Do You Have to Do to Get a Visa Around Here?“  Near as we can tell not much has changed since then.  The ...

M-Banking Gets More Attention From Industry Giants Like Ericsson, VISA
2012-03-05 10:00:00
Mobile Banking has always showed immense scope for growth. A number of companies already have had their M-Commerce and Mobile Money ventures out in the market for some time now. Nokia Money, powered by Obopay, Airtel Money and various other players have existed for a while.  Now, more companies are realizing the potential India offers, with a majority of its population being un-banked. The same way a majority of India connects to the internet via their mobile phones, instead of traditional PC’s, brands feel that more Indians could access financial services from their mobile phones than from traditional banks. This is because of India’s large rural population, where the banking infrastructure is seen as inadequate. Companies like Vodafone, Airtel, Ericsson and even Western Union and VISA are looking to supply India with M-Banking solutions. Says Per Borgklint, Ericsson, “Majority of India’s prepaid users operate through Ericsson system. And our system can quick...

The platform will provide delivery of mobile financial services such as banking, bill payments, mass transit ticketing, mobile top-up and others.

How To Get A China Visa. Just The Real Basics.
2009-12-14 06:28:00
This post is part of our new Basics of China Business Law series, where we discuss, usually in a bare bones sort of way, the basics of what it takes to do business in China legally. This post focuses on the different sorts of visas one can use to get into/stay in China. My law firm almost never involves itself in Chinese visa issues because it typically does not make sense for our clients to pay law firm rates for us to do so. Chinese visa matters are typically better handled internally or by a reputable visa assistance company. My law firm and I usually use a visa company to secure our visas to China because we find it easier to do so and because the company we use has been coming through for us for more than a decade (and not just with China, but with many other countries as well) and it definitely seems to have a very good relationship with the Chinese consulate in SFO. China visa information will always be at least somewhat dependent on the country in which you are seek...
Average Indian Spends Less Than 1 lakh A Year Via E-Commerce – Visa S
2009-11-26 08:40:00
In the first WATBlog panel discussion that we held in IIT last year a point was made about how the fortunes of online advertising in India is connected with the growth of ecommerce. The same point was reiterated again in the WATBlog panel at IIM Bangalore as well a few months ago. Now if we consider this a fair assumption then what Visa has found via its consumer survey study can be at best termed as disappointing when it comes to online ecommerce in India. Visa in its Consumer Monitor study for Q2 2009 have come up with the following findings: Confidence in ecommerce: One in three respondents polled reported that they were very confident when using their payment cards online. Driver of online shopping: “Freedom to shop anytime” is main driver for online shopping Top three reasons for shopping online: ‘the freedom to shop anytime’ (75 percent), ‘the ability to compare prices and save money’ (74 percent) and ’save time’ (74 percent). ...

2009-05-29 15:49:00
When Ziggy wakes me up at 4:00 a.m. by playing with the bedroom blinds, I sometimes think to myself, I wish I had 24-hour concierge service. It would be so nice to call someone whenever I wanted to ask about vacation ideas and travel guides and whatever else concierges do. Well, imagine my excitement when I received such an offer in the mail. Besides the 24-hour concierge service, I would also get luxury gifts, be a part of an exclusive rewards program and have my very own patent pending carbon card. All of this could be mine since I received an invitation to apply for "the world?s most prestigious and versatile credit card," the Visa Black Card. The Director of Customer Experience sent me a personal invitation "limited to only 1% of U.S. residents." Someone must have made a huge mistake to ever include me in the 1% of anything in the United States.*So anyway, all I need to do to have my own Black Card is pay an annual fee of $495, and I?m in.

In his The Ticker Tape Digest, technician Leo Fasciocco looks for stocks that have broken out of basing patterns; his latest breakout stock is credit card processing firm Visa (NYSE: V)."Visa manages a group of global payment card brands. It licenses them to financial institutions that issue cards to their customers."The company maintains the largest card service in the world with annual revenue of $6.5 billion."The stock soared after it came public. It peaked at 90 and then was swept lower with the bear market. The stock has put in what seems to be a good bottom. The key is for it to kick in an up trend. That is quite possible now, but not a given."Of course, V is a lagging issue in that it has not gotten back to a 52-week high. So, it has a technical negative of 'overhead resistance.' That means people who bought at the higher price may want to sell and get even. That might inhibit the stock's ability to move."However, the stock's mome...
