There is no English verb "to visa". Your attempt to conjugate it is quite amusing (I was vising etc)

Dear Derwic,

Thank you for your post. There is a verb "to visa". According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary:

* Main Entry: 2visa
* Function: transitive verb
* Inflected Form(s): vi·saed \-zəd, -səd\; vi·sa·ing \-zə-iŋ, -sə-\
* Date: circa 1847

: to give a visa to (a passport)


We will correct however the conjugation, since it should be "visaing" instead of "vising"

Thank you. I stand corrected, I've never come across visa as a verb. Maybe it is more common in US English than UK English.
