    Re: visit

    Number 1 is correct, but it would usually have more information, such as "every week".

    Note my corrections above. Remember to start every sentence with a capital letter, always capitalise the word "I" and end every sentence with a single, appropriate punctuation mark.

    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    3 is possible, too. If the speaker is a representative of "the factory" and visits another location (say a branch office).

    Re: visit

    3 is grammatical, but I find it to be unnatural.

    Re: visit

    Sentences 1 and 3 would be much more natural with the present progressive:

    1- I'm visiting the factory.
    3- I'm visiting from the factory.

    Sentence 3 would make sense if a factory representative was visiting a customer's site.

    I'm visiting from the furniture factory you called yesterday. Please take me to the rooms where the furniture will be put. I have to take measurements.
