    Hi Francis
    I would love to know if I could carry a drone in my luggage into qatar.
    I do not intend to use it in qatar but only in places where I travel for leisure.

      Hi Fatima,
      Please advise if you have been able to find an answer to this question. I am going to be in transit in 14 hours in doha and will be traveling with my drone.

        Hi Garima and Steve,
        We had transits in Doha (without leaving the airport) a couple of times. So far, we had no problems. I expect that you can bring your drone to the country without complications.
