Registration of drones for commercial use

  • Drones intended for commercial use only need to be registered. 
  • Drones used for recreational purposes only, do not have to be registered.

Registration of a drone is a simple process and free of charge.

As soon the registration form is submitted to the Transport Authority, you will receive confirmation number of registration. This number is also the registration number and no other information is necessary. Your drone has been registered!
