The Dubai Land Department (DLD) has announced that its finance department recently activated new smart payment services through the Apple Pay and Samsung Pay applications.
The move is aligned with the Dubai Smart Government’s strategy to support outstanding government performance based on the latest technologies.
The DLD introduced the service in June and is now in use at the department’s headquarters and all real estate registration trustee offices. The aim of the project is to facilitate the payment process in compliance with the DLD’s objective to switch to electronic, paperless financial procedures, helping to reduce the use of cash and cheques, in favour of modern smart channels.
Saad Abdulla Alhamadi, Director of the Finance Department at DLD, said: “In light of the wide use of smartphones across our society, it has become essential to adopt this technology to facilitate procedures in daily business activities. We have added this service to better serve our customers and provide them with added value.”
