Hi all,

Flying to the Dominican Republic next week and curious to know if UAVs are allowed in the country?  Couldn't find much online.

Going via Delta airlines and last thing I want is for my P3 to be confiscated at the airport...

I recently read that the Dominican now requires a permit for drones. Is this true?  I'm travelling there from Canada next week and want to ensure there won't be any issues.

I'm going to the Dominican Republic / Punta Cana soon.  I have submitted my paperwork and waiting for their reply.   The forms were only in Spanish.

Just got back from Dominican Republic the other week.  Flew my DJI Spark all over the resort.  Had a great time and no one bothered me.  I did have a permit but no one asked to check it while I was there.  I posted a bunch of videos on my YouTube Channel if you want to check out some of the footage.

Here's one of the videos I shot while there:

Hey there,

I am glad you have enjoyed your time in the DR. I am due to travel there this Thursday but having a time understanding these forms. Would I be risking it if I took my mavic with me and flew it around?

thanks in advance,
Mazin.

Sorry, missed this post before you left.  Hopefully, everything went okay.  To be honest, no one even ever asked to see my approval letter from DR the whole time I was there.  I think you'll be fine but better safe than sorry.
