Visa is not a debit card. Visa is a credit card.

Actually, visa is a company that provides transaction technology for banks. Its no more your passport is a national security badge because it's been stamped.

Visa have debt and credit card technology that is licensed around the world for differing types of banks and their accounts they create.

I personally have both a Visa debt AND a visa credit card from two different banks.

Also Visa or any other debt cards do NOT require PIN numbers to be used online. You might have a online banking security for your bank that prompts for a select number, random order of your pin number and maybe also some characters from your online banking password etc but that can also be set up with a credit card.
