Dubai: The Dubai Land Department (DLD) recently activated new smart payment services, including Apple Pay and Samsung Pay, in a drive towards paperless financial procedures and the reduction of cash.

They say that the move is aligned with Dubai’s smart government strategy to support “outstanding government performance based on the latest technologies.”

DLD introduced the service at the beginning of June and it is now in use at the department’s headquarters and all real estate registration trustee offices, for its customers to use.
