Apple Pay will be making its way to Denmark, Finland, Sweden, and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) later this year. Speaking on Apple's Q3 2017 earnings call, Apple CFO Luca Maestri noted the expansion, though did not provide much in the way of details on exactly when those countries should expect the system to arrive.
Maestri also claimed that Apple Pay accounts for 90% of mobile device NFC payment service transactions across the world. Apple is seeing the strongest usage of Apple Pay in international markets, many of which have existing contactless payment infrastructure that is still slowly rolling out in the United States.

Hearing and seeing less on Apple Pay! They really need to get with merchants that’s were the problem is. I thought Apple realized this!
Old news. I visited Copenhagen, Denmark in June. EVERYBODY accepted Apple Pay, even taxi drivers.
