    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.
