Drone Laws in Belize
In this post, you’ll learn the rules you need to take into account when using drones in Belize.
Unfortunately, the rules for using drones in Belize are strict. Currently, only commercial users are allowed to bring a multicopter to Belize if they have been mandated directly by a Belize based company or organization.
Unfortunately, it is currently not possible to capture vacation memories from Belize with a camera drone. However, it should be possible in the future after a change in the law to introduce a drone to Belize for private purposes.
Commercial users must contact the Belize Department of Civil Aviation for approval and explain their intentions. The request must include at least the following information:
- Company or organization that has commissioned the services
- Date of arrival
- Identity card or passport of the pilot
- Filming permission from the Belize Film Commission
- Completed Drone Application Form (can be obtained by e-mail at the below-mentioned e-mail addresses)
After submitting your application, it will be reviewed by the Aviation Authority. Afterwards, you will need to visit the Aeronautical Information Service (AIS) office (first floor at Philip Goldson Airport) and pay a fee of 30 BZE (about 12 €). With the proof of payment, you will eventually receive from the Department of Civil Aviation your import and flight authorization for Belize.
