In a landmark move set to revolutionize the payment experience for Indian travellers, PhonePe, India’s leading digital payments service, has made its debut in the United Arab Emirates. This expansion is powered by a strategic collaboration between Mashreq’s NEOPAY and NPCI International Payments Limited (NIPL), allowing Indian visitors to utilize Unified Payments Interface (UPI) for seamless transactions across a wide array of venues in the UAE.

To commemorate this significant milestone, PhonePe released a stunning promotional video showcasing its integration into the vibrant and luxurious cityscape of Dubai.

Vibhor Mundhada, CEO of NEOPAY at Mashreq, commented on the recent launch, stating that it exemplifies their dedication to incorporating cutting-edge technology and innovation into their operations. He expressed delight in collaborating with PhonePe to offer a new, innovative payment solution for Indian travellers visiting the UAE.
