    From the FAA's FAQ:

    Q11. Are non-U.S. citizens visiting the United States on vacation or for drone competitions required to register?

    Everyone, including foreign nationals and tourists, who operate a UAS for hobby or recreational purposes outdoors in the U.S. must use the FAA's online registration system. These non-U.S. citizens or non-permanent U.S. residents will receive the same registration certificate as U.S. Citizens or permanent U.S. residents. However, this certificate will function as a "recognition of ownership" document. This document is required by the Department of Transportation for foreign nationals to operate legally in the US.

    Try using a VPN service, that makes it look like your IP address originates from the US.

    Thanks. Your suggestion was perfect as I was able to register from Canada using a VPN service!
