Drone Laws in Liberia
This article deals with the legal situation for drone pilots in Liberia.
Currently, there is no legal framework for the use of drones in Liberia.
The Civil Aviation Authority however lists a draft regulation on its website (as of May 2020). We have no information about when this draft may become law.
If you come in with a small drone (smaller than a Phantom 4), then everything may go well. It could also happen that you have to pay an import fee or that the copter is confiscated. Since there are no rules, it is basically up to how the staff interprets the situation.
It’s similar with the private use of drones in Liberia. Due to the political and economic situation in the country after the Civil War, you should refrain from traveling to Liberia with a drone, because it can get you into trouble very quickly.
If you still want to do it, be extra careful on every flight. Security personnel can be very sensitive about this sort of thing.
The experiences described here come from native drone pilots with whom I was in contact. Unfortunately, this exchange ended abruptly, so I fear they got into trouble. This is why I wouldn’t recommend traveling to Liberia with a drone.
We have researched the listed drone regulations for Liberia to the best of our knowledge. We cannot guarantee the correctness of the information. If you want to be on the safe side, contact the competent aviation authority. Alternatively, you can also ask the embassy in your country for further information about the regulations.
