Samsung Pay is the most widely accepted mobile payment service, but it is ultimately up to the banks and card providers in a particular country to enable official support for their credit and debit cards so that they can work with Samsung Pay. This page lists the major banks and payment service providers that are on-board with Samsung Pay in the UAE.

Samsung Pay UAE: Supported banks

  • ADCB
  • Ajman Bank
  • Dubai Isliamic Bank
  • Emirates Islamic
  • Emirates NBD
  • HSBC
  • Mashreq
  • NBAD
  • Noor Bank
  • RAKBANK
  • Sharjah Islamic Bank
  • Standard Chartered

Not all cards from these banks may work with Samsung Pay. Some of them may not work with traditional card machines, either, only with NFC-machines. The list of supported banks and card providers will be regularly updated, so keep checking back if your current bank or card provider doesn’t support Samsung Pay. For more details, check out Samsung’s official website.
