Converting any PDF file into Visio-supported file format is the best solution to use graphic images and diagrams in Visio drawings easily. Visio supports files only created with design tools such as Adobe Illustrator, CorelDraw, and AutoCAD, and it does not support PDF files. If you have a couple of PDF files, you can choose to convert PDF to Visio using Wondershare PDFelement - PDF Editor, which is an efficient and professional PDF converter.
If you prefer to convert PDF to Visio online, you can try Hipdf, an online PDF converter.
Wondershare PDFelement - PDF Editor can be a PDF to Visio converter that enables you to easily convert PDF to Visio supported formats (jpg, png, tiff, txt, etc.). Moreover, it offers you essential features to easily edit, and modify the text, images, and pages in PDF files. The embedded OCR feature even lets you freely make changes on image-based scanned PDF files.

Go to the "Convert" tab, and select the "To Image" or "To Text" option. You can choose any Visio supported formats such as .bmp, .jpg, .txt, .png and so on. After that, choose the output folder to save the Visio file in your desired file destination. Finally, click "Save" to begin the process.
Open any version of the Visio program and go to the "Insert" tab from the Illustrations menu, and select Picture. Open the folder which contains the PDF image file, select the image, and click "Open." The PDF images opened in Visio drawings always open as metafiles, whereas bitmap image files stay on as bitmap in Visio drawings.

With a single click, you can convert PDF from or into images, MS documents, text files, and more. Additionally, you can also edit PDF text before converting them to Visio or other formats.

Wondershare PDF Converter Pro is another program that supports converting PDF to Visio-supported formats. It focuses on the converting feature, and various document formats are supported. So if you want a simple converter, then it should be your choice.
It's easy to convert PDF to Visio with Wondershare PDF Converter Pro. Add a PDF document to the converter, select Visio compatible formats, such as .jpg, .png, .bmp. or .tiff, etc. to convert it. Then you can open Microsoft Visio, and click the "File" > "Open" option to browse the converted PDF file directly.
You can also convert PDF to Visio online by HiPDF, which is the PDF to Visio online converter. Here are the simple steps:
Microsoft Visio can save a drawing project as .vsd, .vdx, or .vsdx（introduced by Microsoft Visio 2013). So after you have exported a Visio project to PDF, can you convert PDF back to .vdx, .vsdx, .vsd directly for easy editing?
It's nearly impossible to convert PDF to .vsd, .vdx, or even the newer .vsdx. The reason is that you have to vectorize the PDF file to turn it into an editable .vsd, .vdx, or .vsdx file.
Here are 2 workarounds if you want to edit a PDF workflow file.
First, convert the PDF to other Visio-supported formats(such as JPG, PNG, SVG, etc.) and then import the file to Visio for editing.
Secondly, edit the PDF file in a PDF editor like PDFelement, which allows you to edit text, images, add shapes on a PDF file.
Download and install the Insert PDF in the Visio add-in.
Click on the document you want to launch. Remember, scanned PDFs open only as a bitmap image.
Select the PDF page you need and adjust any setting, such as rotation or size.
Save as a '.vsdx' file.
You can convert a PDF to Visio in Microsoft Word by following these steps:
Launch the PDF document you want to edit in MS Word.
Using the saving as option, you can save a copy of your document with a new filename.
Select either WMF or EMF as the file type.
Click File>Open in MS Visio to access the WMF or EMF file.
If you want to convert Visio to PDF, you can easily do that by exporting a Visio file as PDF format. To do that, you need to open the diagram in Visio, then click Export > Create PDF/XPS Document and select Create PDF/XPS. Now click Save as to save the Visio file in PDF.

Visio supports more than 22 file formats, and it allows you to import graphic images and vector-based designs as metafiles into Visio drawings. But Bitmap images such as .pcx, .bmp, etc., always remain as bitmaps. It's better to convert the vector-based graphic designs as Visio drawings as the editing in original file format gives unnecessary jagged lines in your Visio drawings. Here is a list of popular file formats used in Visio Drawings:
