Frequently asked questions


What is Ziina?

Ziina is the UAE’s first peer-to-peer payment app, allowing you to send and receive payments with just a phone number —no IBAN or swift code required. The app provides a seamless way for friends and family to split the cost of takeout or a grocery bill.

Do I have to live in the UAE to use the app?

Ziina is currently available to UAE residents on iOS and Android. You don't have to be in the UAE to use the app, but at the moment you can only create a Ziina account if you have a valid Emirates ID.

We are working on a number of new features, including cross border payments that will open up the app to more users in the future!
