In this post, we explain the rules for multicopter pilots in Guyana.
Before you can take a drone to Guyana, you need a permit from the Guyana Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA). Permission can be requested here. You should allow for a processing time of at least 30 days.
If you cannot present a permit upon entry, the drone could be confiscated at the airport. However, if you have received a permit and have entered the country successfully, the following requirements apply.
