Expatriates and visitors arriving in the UAE from India can now use the UPI app for online payments. NIPL, the international arm of the National Payments Corporation of India, has recently partnered with several international financial services providers. As part of this, Mashreq Bank of the UAE has entered into an agreement with Niope.
People with Indian bank accounts can make payments using UPI at retail stores and other business locations in the UAE. At the same time, UPI payments are only available at the neopay terminal in the UAE. NeoPay and NIPL were partners last year to enhance infrastructure in the UAE. The UPI system has been approved in Nepal and Bhutan.
