Drone regulations in Thailand (2020)

If you want to fly a drone in Thailand, you will have to take some hurdles. In this article, I explain to you the conditions you have to fulfill.

In recent years, the rules for drone pilots in Thailand have changed quite often. This creates a lot of confusion and not all the information you can find on the internet is up to date. I am trying to give you a current and complete overview of the legal situation in the Kingdom.

First of all, if you are caught drone-flying without the necessary permits, you face high fines and even imprisonment. Thai prisons are not fun!

For most camera drones, you need two registrations: First, from the National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission (NBTC), which handles the frequencies used by the drone. Second, by the Civil Aviation Authority of Thailand (CAAT), which registers all drone pilots.

So far it is not possible to complete the registrations before going to Thailand. This means you will need some luck to get your documents in time. In the following I explain to you how the procedures at NBTC and CAAT work.

Overview: Drone rules in Thailand

Recreational use of drones allowed? Yes, after registration or approval
Commercial use of drones permitted? Yes, after registration or approval
Maximum Altitude:90 Meter (295,3 Foot) in uncontrolled airspace.
Is drone insurance mandatory? Yes, for private and commercial drone flights. Learn more about drone insurance here.
Does the drone need a badge?No.
Drone labels can be ordered here
Is a registration necessary? Yes.
Keep distance to airports
Respect the privacy of other people

Registration of drones in Thailand

In total, you need three documents to fly legally in Thailand: drone insurance, NBTC registration and CAAT registration. You should have these documents with you during all drone flights.

Get insurance

The insurance confirmation should be in English and contain the following data:

  • full name of the policyholder
  • brand, model, serial number and weight of the insured drone(s)
  • validity in Thailand must be clear
  • insurance coverage of at least THB 1 million (approx. EUR 30,000)

Register with the NBTC

Registration can be done easily at one of the NBTC offices and may only take 10-15 minutes. You have to appear there personally but don’t need an appointment. The approval granted is valid for the same duration as your visa, but our readers have pointed out that, even for permanent residents, the approval is only valid for up to 90 days. Whenever you re-enter the country, you will need a new permit from the NBTC.

You can prepare the following documents for your visit to the NBTC:

  • signed copy of your passport and entry stamp
  • proof of address in Thailand (e.g. booking confirmation from the hotel)
  • photos of the drone, the controller and the respective serial numbers

Once there, you will receive forms to fill out, which are also available online. As far as we know, it’s this document, but you should make sure that it is still up to date. In any case, you can use it to prepare the technical data for your drone. You don’t have to take the drone to the NBTC!

If you fail to register with the NBTC and are caught by the police, you could face up to five years in prison or a fine of 100,000 THB (approx. 3,000 euros).

Register with the CAAT

You have to register your drone with the CAAT if it has a camera/recording equipment or – if it does not have recording equipment – weighs more than 2 kg.

You can only register with the CAAT once you have the approval of the NBTC. Since summer 2018, registration has been possible via the online platform uav.caat.or.th.

The relevant fields have been translated into English so that you should be able to fill out the forms quite easily. You will have to provide a lot of personal information during the process. In addition, you have to upload a signed self-declaration, a picture of the drone with the serial number on it and proof of your drone insurance. In addition, the CAAT requires a copy of your passport with the entry stamp. Several of our readers received rejections due to the lack of proof of entry. This means that you can only register once you have already entered the country.

After you have submitted the complete documents, the CAAT will check your application and carry out a background check with several security authorities to ensure that you have not yet committed any legal violations in Thailand. Since this can be very time-consuming, you have to expect a long processing time. The CAAT writes on its website that you will receive a notification within 15 working days. In practice, it can be shorter, but it can also take much longer. The good news is that if your registration was successful, it is valid for two years.

If you are caught flying without CAAT registration, you face up to 1 year imprisonment and / or 40,000 THB penalty (approx. 1,200 euros).

Frequently asked questions about drone rules in Thailand

I would like to answer the questions most commonly asked in the comments here:

  1. Do I have to register my DJI Spark / DJI Mavic Pro / … for my Thailand vacation?
    Yes, because these drones have a camera. You can find more information above.
  2. I am only visiting Thailand in transit and do not want to start my drone in the country. Can I get in trouble if I have no registration?
    There should be no problems. Customs are not interested in drones, and the registrations are only required for the operation of unmanned aerial vehicles. However, there may be issues if the authorities get the impression that you want to resell the drone in Thailand (for example, if you import the drone in its original sealed packaging).
  3. I am flying to Thailand in a few weeks/days and would like to take my drone with me. Now I have read that I have to register. What can I do now?
    You should take out drone liability insurance and collect the above documents. At the moment you can only register if you are already in Thailand. But keep in mind that processing your application can take weeks and you may not receive your permits in time if you are in the country for only a short vacation.
  4. How long does it take to register with the CAAT?
    This varies and also seems to depend on the number of current applications. You can avoid a very long processing time by submitting all documents on time. Please keep in mind that processing at CAAT will only begin once you have approval from the NBTC.

Further regulations for operating multicopters in Thailand

After you have successfully registered yourself and your drone, there are of course other rules to follow

If you want to fly privately and no camera is mounted on your drone, the maximum take-off weight is 2 kg. With a higher weight you need approval from the CAAT. Drones weighing 25 kilograms or more need a separate permit from the Ministry of Transport.

Commercial pilots need permission for their flight maneuvers.

Safety distances and flight bans

You have to keep a distance of 9 kilometers (= 5 miles) to airports.

You can’t get closer than 50 meters to people, vehicles and buildings.

You must not fly near crowds of people. Flying over cities and villages is not allowed. Also avoid government buildings and hospitals.

You must always obtain permission from the property owner to take off and land. In practice, we usually solve this by asking the guards for permission or by asking at the information desk.

Your drone must always be kept within visual line of sight.

Drone flights are only allowed in daylight in Thailand, i.e. between sunrise and sunset.

The Thai rules also stipulate that you have an emergency plan. This includes having to carry a fire extinguisher with you. We have not yet found out whether this rule is enforced.

Good to know: Flights in Chiang Mai must be generally approved by air traffic control because the airport is so close to the city. We have obtained the appropriate permission. But you should call a few days before so that the people in the tower can coordinate with their bosses. Also, for flights over the historic park of Ayutthaya, approval is necessary. The Historical Park Office grants the permission, which is open daily from 8:30 to 16:30. According to the tourist information, the permit costs 5,000 baht.

We have researched the listed drone regulations for Thailand 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 Thai aviation authority. Alternatively, you can also ask the Thai embassy in your country for further information about the regulations.

    Decidedly many people have bought a drone without having a minimum of flying skill and aerial map !!
    For your information the island of ko Phi Phi, Ko Mai Thon,AO Tang Chen, Ao Kham are forbidden to fly according to the AIP 5.1 VTD map provided by the Thai authorities and I remind you once again that this card has a national and international legal value
    It will take an incident or accident for you to understand that a drone is not a toy! Pray gods not to be involved in any of these incidents or accidents …. because your insurance (mandatory) and I guess you do not have any do not cover you in this situation since you are in breach and there you will a lot of worries
    In the end, a lot of blah blah and temerity in Thailand what you would not do in Europe or the USA who also have identical legislation with AIP 5.1
    The countdown is started !!! who will get caught first
    wait and see !!!! Island,Bond,Beach,National Park Thailand

  • Juan Bodan. | 14.02.2018

    At leas we are allowed to fly other countries they banned drones at all!!!!!

  • Fredrik | 24.02.2018

    Hi,
    Just got back from 4 weeks in Thailand, I placed my drone in the hand luggage no problem at all.
    Since a was to late to send my papper to CAAT I simply went to the local police office at Krabi
    Offcourse I got the following info and paper with me.

    Copy of your ID card, passport, registration certificate and proof of drone insurance. The insurance confirmation should be in English and contain the following critical data
    Full name of the policyholder
    Brand, model, and weight of insured drone(s)
    Worldwide validity must be clear
    Coverage of the insurance

    At the police station I filled in a form and they should seen it to all CAAT, NBTC they told me.
    I got a sign paper from head of Karbi police that I was approved to fly drone.
    All it took was about 10 min.
    So it´s easy to fix flight permission at police station.
    But use common sense when and where you are bout to use the drone.
    Happy flight!

    • bernard | 28.03.2018

      Hello
      Again !! record on Police station is only for NBTC for your radio communication as per telecom law
      Police station or NBTC do not give any permission to fly only CAAT aviation can do that !!!
      Please, this is the mail of public relation CAAT in charge to collect and record you drone
      ask clarification and you will see !!!

    I would say for anyone going to Thailand and either reads these comments too late. The best thing to do is at least have documentation on hand for airports. Otherwise, I was there (unfortunately my drone was broken) and I didn’t actually see a lot of police nor drones. So just be smart, don’t film within city limits, crowds etc and you should be okay. Otherwise, go to the police office to do what Fredrik did and you should be good.

    • bernard | 28.03.2018

      Congratulation for your expert point of view !!!!

  • Tibor | 02.03.2018

    >>> Flights in Chiang Mai must be generally approved by the air traffic control because the airport is so close to the city. We have obtained the appropriate permission.

    Where do you obtain it? and who to contact?

  • PAU | 03.03.2018

    Rules has changed feb 2018.

    I tried to insurance with thic company
    http://dronethaiinsurance.com

    Thay answered that one week ago:

    Dear Pau,

    Sorry for lost our contact for awhile, due to new announcement from NBTC last week as following ,

    Drone bring into Thailand must have an import license before traveling.
    And must declare at the customs house.

    And must register before using it, at the NBTC office.

    Using drone in Thailand are allow to use of 2.4 GHz frequency. Transmission power not exceeding 100 mW
    and 5.8 GHz. Transmit power not exceeding 1 watts (e.i.r.p)

    Application for import license can empower others to act.

    And the operator must get permission from the Civil Aviation Authority of Thailand.

    * NBTC – The office of The National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission
    * CAAT – The Civil Aviation Authority of Thailand (CAAT)

    I am trying to find the best way to do.

    Best Regards,

    Danny

  • Bob | 04.03.2018

    Hey I have just a question, im not planning to fly my dji spark in thailand im just there to visit my friends for a few days as a transit before goin back to australia, do I still need a permit? If i dnt have a permit will they confiscate my drone in the airport?

    • Chris | 21.03.2018

      What happened? Did they confiscate your done?

      • bernard | 28.03.2018

        No, but they can force you to leave the appliance in the gardening zone
        and you will recover when you tell you that you will have to pay the temporary storage fees depending on the duration
        it is provided for in the Thais customs regulations

        • tsukamoto | 02.04.2018

          oh man so much craziness regarding drones and thailand in this comment section :/ I arrived in bangkok 2 weeks ago and had the mavic pro among other stuff (2 dslrs, 2 mavic batts, laptop, gopro…) in my hand luggage and there was no issues. The xray check guys at the airport had me give the bag for a second scan (all the stuff was in that one bag) and then said its ok. I also flew to krabi airport yesterday with all those stuff and no one bothered at all at the xray check. not sure about flying it here cause I definitely have no time to register or anything. hell, the visa is 60 days max, how on earth can a foreigner apply for registration and then wait that long, LOL.

          • DULEROY Bernard | 07.09.2018

            He !He you do not know the custom rule and fly rule Thai …
            It is not mandatory to have a importation certificate and you are free to have you drone with you any ware in the kingdom but Switch off engine !!!
            If you use the drone and fly you are in infraction it is very simple !!!

  • Francis Markert | 29.03.2018

    Just came back from Thailand
    i completed my forums in February and still not received anything i rang them 4 times within two weeks of going and and still got no reply
    I took a risk and took all forums with me and visited the NBTC office took 45 Mins to register my Drone as they have new forums and they will not accept the old one, Also you need Photos of your Drone from every angle along with a clear photo of the Serial Number and the serial Number of the remote, two copies of your passport and all have to be Singed and dated

    I was luck and there was a Taiwanese guy registering his drone when i was trying to do mine and help loads
    i forgot to get his name but if you see this thanks a million if it was not for him my drone would not of got registered
    I had no issues with customs at all on both international and domestic flights.

    • Brian Lane | 13.06.2018

      I have been in Thailand for 5 days. Flew into Bangkok airport. Took three different trains within city. Then flown from Bangkok airport to Phuket. Drown in backpack, with underwater camera, removu and battery’s in TSA safe. No problems. One security guy checked my luggage because of baby wipes. The drone he was scared to move around. And his accent seemed European. No problems. Have flown the drone three places. Just be smart when flying and don’t act scared when going through security checks. DJI Phantom Pro +. Good luck.

      • Oscar O | 20.06.2018

        Which means that you did not register on anything or with any documentations with you and just went through the security checks? Do you have to declare it first?

        What about departing from the airport? They allow you to bring on to the plane?

        • Brian lane | 23.06.2018

          I did not have anything. Just my drone in backpack. Went to prachuap, Phuket, krabi. Only careful where and when I used it. Went through Bangkok airport three times, once through Chiangmai and Phuket airport. Did not use the drone in Chiangmai or Bangkok metro.

  • Dave M | 23.06.2018

    Several days ago, we saw a group of tourists arrested for using a small drone at the beach in Ko Samui, Thailand. Only one person was controlling it but all four were taken by the police who told us later they had no license and no insurance and also operating it too close to people walking on the beach. We heard later that they had to stay overnight in jail and pay 50,000 baht each to get out on bail! They were all considered to be using the Drone just because they were all watching the video feed.

    • Adam West | 29.06.2018

      I would say that you can just take it with you if you don’t intend to use it. It’s just another piece of your personal belongings. All drone owners and operators should realise that you can lose a drone at anytime due to any number of reasons and you should be aware of the risk involved and be prepared to suffer the cost of losing one. Otherwise leave it at home or don’t buy one. Life is an adventure and risk is always a part of that. I see a lot of comments on here by people that can’t seem to think for themselves or do their own research or take any calculated risks. We all know the rules and that Thailand and surrounding places are third world countries and you will be treated accordingly if caught doing the wrong thing…

    • petedk | 19.07.2018

      This is the problem with Thailand. There are so many dubious laws regarding drones, e-cigarettes and other things that foreigners don’t know about.
      Generally nothing happens and tourists go about their ways in peace.
      Sometimes however, the police go crazy and arrest the tourists and threaten with hefty fines or even jail time.
      It is always safer to have all papers in order.

      • SPREX 64 | 23.07.2018

        Sorry, there is no dubious law in Thailand but Act.BE, ministerial circulars, royal decrees, command order or agency or government department notifications much better done than you think even sophisticated
        You have no idea of ​​the administrative organization of this country and speak as if you were resident there which I doubt besides …
        For the regulation UAV Drone Act BE 2558 (2015) and Air navigation Act BE 2047 (amended) the innumerable warnings of the Thai authority are very clear except that some texts have not been translated into English so you will interpret very wrong what the different regulations say
        Clearly this country is not as you think and he has an admirable and legal infrastructure that has nothing to envy the OECD do not dislike you

        Regarding the customs declaration nothing new your drone can be considered as goods (tax exemption) and as the International Customs Code indicates
        it must therefore be declared in temporary importation (tax exemption) but it must be brought out of course

        The Royal Thai Tourist Police Division notified in March 2018 (English) on page 4/4 so that you can understand exactly what the regulation says it is curious that people persist in not wanting to understand because especially it does not arrange them ….
        Personally I just received my license and the views of many requests during these 8 months of procedure it is clear that the government does not wish to distribute licenses to all those tourists who tend to do anything with their drone just watch Youtube !!!!

        Here is the notification of the Tourist Police which reminds the requirements of having to make 2 very distinct declarations and in addition to filling the form 32 for the import of your drone
        https://touristpolice.go.th/wp-content/uploads/2018/03/0002.pdf
        form import http://www.nbtc.go.th/getattachment/Business/commu/radio/licensing/%E0%B9%81%E0%B8%9A%E0%B8%9A%E0%B8%9F%E0 % B8% AD% E0% B8% A3% E0% B9% 8C% E0% B8% A1% E0% B8% 84% E0% B8% B3% E0% B8% 82% E0% B8% AD / 31833 /% E0% B9% 81% E0% B8% 9A% E0% B8% 9A% E0% B8% 84% E0% B8% B3% E0% B8% 82% E0% B8% AD-32.pdf.aspx
        the processing time of the applications to CAAT is considerable do not dream too much and it is a little expret you have to be visa long stay or work permit to hope to get it ….. Regards

    Around Thai Baht 3000 per year for 1 million baht coverage(minimum needed).
    Cheers

  • Vasco | 13.07.2018

    What are the ‘registration marks’ the application asks for in regards to your drone?
    I assume I get the registration marks after registering the drone, why the form is asking for it before registering?

  • Sir Maxwell Greene | 17.07.2018

    If anyone is interested, here is the official announcement from the Thai Ministry of Transport on rules and regulations. I have uploaded the document for your use. Link below.

    I live and work in Bangkok. I carry a copy of this with me in my drone case alongside my insurance info, copy of my passport. Become familiar with it. If you do get stopped atleast you know the rules and don’t get bullied into a bribe or arrest because you don’t know the laws.

    Bangkok city is for the most part too crowded to fly a drone, unless you have access to a big quite parking area, roof top, private property…so don’t take the chance.
    I am always on the look out for new places to launch from and they are not easy to find.

      Hello, If you know the Thai RPA / UAV regulations you still need to know that any flight is prohibited on the city of Bangkok !!!!
      I invite you to consult the AIP Map NER 5.1 published by the CAAT especially for the Drones ….. which is named in the Act Act BE 2558 clausr 5 (2) b
      Bangkok is ranked VTR1 ID 3000 …..
      As a reminder, the AIP has a national and international jurisidic value
