Dubai unveils new e-wallet for government payments

Dubai’s Department of Finance (DOF), in association with Smart Dubai and emaratech, has introduced a digital wallet in a bid to facilitate payments for government service fees.

According to the official communiqué, the new payment channel noqodi helps individual users and corporate customers to pay “quickly, easily and securely” for varied 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 Abdul Rahman Saleh Al Saleh, the department’s Director General.

“We commend Smart Dubai’s efforts in developing the digital infrastructure and the provision of smart payment channels,” he added.

The new digital wallet, noqodi, is the latest version available for making payments to government fees through Dubai Pay, the Dubai Now smart application.

Customers willing to use this can add credit to their noqodi account online from their bank accounts at several national banks.
