I want to go to Iraq with my Phantom4 RTK for mapping. However, I can't find any information about regulation. If someone knows about it or experienced, please let me know. Thanks!

Aloha fans67b,

     Iraq is considered a war zone.  Phantoms are used in Iraq as bombs and for surveillance.  You will probably have to hire an armed guard for the Phantom to keep it from being confiscated or stolen.  

     Who ever is contracting you for the mapping operation will have the information on getting it in the country, but no matter what you do, it may still be confiscated when you enter the country even if you have permission.  Maybe the company can provide the armed guard when they pick you up at the airport.

     Hope this helps!

Aloha and Drone On!

Hello and good day. Thank you for reaching out. I understand that you wanted to bring your DJI Pnantom 4 RTK to Iraq. I hope you'll get the best recommendation here from our valued DJI Members and Customers who have been to Iraq and brought there Drones with them. In addition the best way to know how to pack and bring your drone to Iraq is to contact your local airport authority and the airlines customer service to know all the rules and regulations on this matter and you may also check our geo zone map to possibly avoid restricted areas in Iraq. Please refer to the link below for further check. Thank you for your support and have a safe and happy flying in Iraq.

Thank you for your kind response!

My company has worked in Iraq for over a year. So, my company ensure security.

According to this link(https://uavcoach.com/drone-laws-in-iraq/), we are not allowed to bring my Phantom 4 RTK. So I'm just wondering whether I can enter Iraq airport with my drone.

If you are planning to fly anywhere north of Bhagdad, it might pay to consider this:

Then have a look here and zoom in on Iraq to see the detail - you might have to wait a little for it to load all zones.

I mean, why would you want to map Iraq for in the first place?

For shipping pet, better to contact a specialized company who knows how to handle the process :

The pet must be vaccinated properly!

Most of Iraq is a DJI no fly zone, so you might struggle to be able to fly it.

Also considering that Iraq has been thoroughly mapped by military and intel agencies satellites and drones... -but perhaps the files are not easily available?
