Dubai: Paying off your traffic fines in Dubai has never been easier.

The Department of Artificial Intelligence at Dubai Police has upgraded a smart platform to pay transaction fees by using Apple Pay feature of smart phones at all service centres and the Smart Police Stations (SPS).

Brigadier Khalid Nasser Al Razzouqi, Director General of the Department of Artificial Intelligence at Dubai Police, said that residents can use the feature by tapping their iPhones either at police service centres or at smart police stations.

Apple Pay can be used by anyone with credit cards from any of these six UAE banks: Mashreq, Emirates NBD, Emirates Islamic, RAK Bank, HSBC, or Standard Chartered. 

Here’s how to set up and use Apple pay in the UAE.

Dubai Police opened its first smart station in City Walk recently, and is expected to open more stations at Media City, Dubai Design District (d3), and Dubai International Academic City.

“The public can use this feature carry out police fee transactions at all service centres spread across the emirate of Dubai,” he said.

Brig Al Razzouqi pointed out that the new feature enables customers to shorten several steps in electronic payment, noting that the provision of electronic payment devices with credit cards (POS) in all customer service centres are supported with Apple Pay.
