The first thing to do when dealing with a lost Visa credit card is freeze the card through the card issuer’s website or mobile app, if possible.

If you need the card within a few days, request expedited shipping when you speak with your card issuer. Just be sure to ask about any fees that may be assessed for rush delivery.
