Drone Laws in Kazakhstan

Flying drones in KazakhstanThis article deals with the legal situation for the use of drones in the Republic of Kazakhstan.

It is allowed in Kazakhstan to bring in a drone. However, to fly a multicopter, you need the approval of the competent authority. If you start your drone without permission, it may result in fines, imprisonment or confiscation of your equipment.

The permit for drone flights can be carried out at the Committee of Civil Aviation in Astana. For the application, I would prepare a data sheet of the drone, an English-language proof of drone insurance, if possible evidence of knowledge and a list of planned flight times and locations. I can not tell you exactly what you need, but you are well prepared on the spot with this documents.

    we wrote in Russian language to an aviation department, Minister of Internal Affairs (actually to all departments we found through internet) and no one reply. anyway flying out of the city is with no problem all around kazakhstan, even in national parks (when we wasn’t sure we asked soldiers and patrols in national parks many times and always with no problem. in the city (following basic rules) and you should be more carefull because of police (no one catch me) but if they catch you according to how acting officers when they stop your car, i’m 100% sure that some small bribe like 5000tg ($13, €12) male them blind for a while. or you can ask them if is ok to fly it on place where you just are
