As part of the agreement, Meniga will join the Visa Ready Program as a certified Fintech Enablement partner. The new certification provides credibility to Meniga’s state-of-the-art digital banking capabilities, within the Asia Pacific markets. Meniga’s solutions meet Visa’s global standards around security and functionality and Meniga has been provided with the Visa Ready certification. Meniga will be listed on the Visa Partner Portal, to help facilitate more opportunities in the region.

The Visa Ready Program is designed to help technology companies, like Meniga, to accelerate their growth by providing certification guidelines and go-to-market support, helping them uncover new markets, as well as gain access to newly launched Visa products and solutions.
