Drone regulations in Barbados
In this post, we’ll keep you updated on the legal situation for drone pilots in Barbados.
Barbados has an import ban on drones. This has been extended several times and is currently valid until April 2020. Nevertheless, the government has created an opportunity for visitors to acquire a license, provided the drone leaves the country again after a short time.
The application is associated with some effort. First of all, you have to register your drone at customs upon entry. They will decide whether you can apply for a license and will then issue a so-called “withheld certificate”. Your drone will most likely stay at customs until you have the license.
Then you take this certificate and the completed application form TU033 to the Telecommunications Unit Headquarters, more precisely to the Clerical Officer, address: Trinity Business Center, Country Road, Bridgetown, opening times: Mon-Fri 8:30 a.m. – 4 p.m. Note that on the application form under “CLASS OF SERVICE DESIRED” you should enter your arrival and departure dates. Now you also have to pay the application fee of Bds$30 or US$16. This is only possible in cash or by check.
If you are lucky, you will be issued the license and can pick up your drone at customs.
