Hi,

Look here for Maldive's drone rules.

I'd say, forget it, leave it at home this time. Its too bad since there are some very nice aerial shot to take....

Cheers,
Wolferl

DON'T RISK IT!!!!
On December 2018 i was to Marocco for holidays but i didn't know that drones prohibited, the result was to lose my spark....police took it....i contact with the Hellenic embassy at Marocco but unfortunatly my litle spark left at Marroco, so my friend go to Maldives without your spark.

Oh, it's really hard issue to take pets to abroad. It demands all kind of vaccination, passpartisation and other stuff. If one count, it's simply buy a new dog at final destination rather then bring a firmer one.

I agree with you!! For the same reason i bought my spark, for taking photos and videos from places i go, otherwise drones are useless. Laws are made from people but in some countries they think that everyone who has drone is a spy....like james bond.........you must be stupid at all to think like that....all over the atmosphere are exist thousand of satellites....you don't use drones to spy military facilities etc.....so you can only laugh when you hear something like that as an excuse because they want to take your drone....it doesn't matter.....i will buy another drone!! It's not easy to buy second drone because the amount of money is big but i don't want some idiot to force me not to do my hobby because with his little mind he think that everyone how owns drones want the disaster of his country.....

its a pitty to have to read in every country the drone laws, but in the other hand, its the amount of money you need to buy an other drone if police take it from you and all the trouble you have to get in in a foreign country, which is difficult to talk to local people and understand everything. The idea when you going for vacation is to relax, enjoy the sea and take some photos to have memmories printed on a paper.
As manolism sead we are not spys, but the police dont know us, so the are thinking that we maybe are.
Have safe hours of fly and keep smiling!
Love from Greece!

Hi, we're sorry to know that. We would recommend abiding by those local policies when in terms of flying the drones to have a peaceful flight. Thank you for sharing your concerns here.
