Pay for Dubai services with new Noqodi digital wallet

By Divi S.

DUBAI 7 May 2019: The Dubai’s Department of Finance (DOF), in collaboration with Smart Dubai and emaratech, has launched a digital wallet to facilitate the payments for government service fees.

The new payment channel, ‘noqodi’, enables individual and corporate customers to pay quickly, easily and securely for different government and non-government fees under Dubai Pay, the digital platform for payments.

“DOF is keen to raise government customer happiness by providing more secure and easy-to-use payment options, such as noqodi e-wallet, through cooperation with Smart Dubai,” said Abdulrahman Saleh Al Saleh, DOF Director General.

The new digital wallet, noqodi, is the latest option available to pay government fees through Dubai Pay gateway, the Dubai Now smart application.

Jamal Hamed Al Marri, Executive Director of Central Accounts Sector at DOF, said: “The launch of noqodi comes in the context of the continuous efforts of the Government of Dubai to facilitate payments of government transactions. The new digital wallet is characterised by enabling high-volume transactions, which could reach up to millions of dirhams. This prepares government entities to stop accepting cheques and bank transfers.

“We have listed in a number of national banks and financial institutions that allow customers to feed the wallet with credit from their bank accounts, and we will include other financial entities in our list to enable a wider stake of customers to benefit from the digital wallet.”

Online Credit

Customers can add credit to their noqodi account online from their bank accounts in a number of national banks, including Mashreq Bank, Emirates NBD, Emirates Islamic Bank, Dubai Islamic Bank, Commercial Bank of Dubai and Abu Dhabi Commercial Bank. Credit can be added to the wallet through a number of exchange houses such as Al Ansari. DOF is working to include more banks and exchange houses to allow a wider range of customers to benefit from this new payment method.
