    I tried to find some info but couldn't confirm anything. Has anyone travelled with a Dji drone for recreational use in Dominican Republic? What's their regulation sets..any issues at customs?
    I've been to Mexico with no problems at all.

    Thanks

    Hi, I've been living in Rep. Dom. for the last few years. Drones are still unregulated there, but if you follow guidelines set forth in the US you should have no problems. Also, you should have no problems going thru customs, as long as your drone isn't new in box. There are significant import tariffs on merchandise they deem as new or imported for sale. If your Spanish is good you should ease right thru. Have a blast, plenty of beautiful country there!

    As I am going in March 2017 in DR, I contacted IDAC for permission. They gave me a 16 page document to fill in (is in spanish, of course), however, it states there that for drone under 2 kilos we don't need permission. Just keep the normal rules. So, a Phantom 3/4/4P is ok.

    Hi. Sent now, is in Spanish. Keep in mind though, it says there that if a drone is under 2 kils, is no need for permission. I am going myself between 4th - 16th of march, I'll just print that in case i am being asked. Happy flying!

    Will do soon. Thanks to a fellow drone pilot, I have the english version also (thanks Nick DeG!). Again, if one has a regular Phantom 3/4/4P drone (under 2 kilos), is no need to apply for permission, the document is jus for peace of mind.

    Is there away you can send that to me. Spanish version is fine as it may be easier to get thru customs, although I would think they read and speak English. robertkhernandez@hotmai.com

    Thanks in advance

    Files for Dominican Republic application can be downloaded from here, please just leave a small comment when you do so, just to see if people are actually interested and if I should look into more "exotic" countries ...
