Visa shared on Twitter 2 hours ago (at the time of this post) that the services are down a the moment and that Visa transactions will fail in Europe with no ETA of when the problem will be solved.
We are currently experiencing a service disruption which is preventing some Visa transactions in Europe from being processed. We are investigating the cause and working as quickly as possible to resolve the situation. We will keep you updated.

People are starting to get frustrated as the systems have been down for hours and the account is getting a lot of angry Tweets.
We are also seeing people stranded with there cards not working and able to use transit and taxies because of no funds and the Visa cards not working.
This "disruption" has been going on for hours, is not fixed yet and @visanewseurope is basically mute… reassuring
