Drone Registration in Thailand



October 11, 2017 in Thailand passed the law on "mandatory registration of drones / copters". In fact, the registration of a drone does not end with one and in order to have the full right to operate a copter over the territory of Thailand and shoot a video, you will also need: insurance and a license to operate the copter.

What will happen if you fly (control drones) in Thailand without registration, insurance and license?

Balancing data from different sources, we get information that: if you manage a drone without registration, insurance and license - you can get under arrest for up to 5 years and / or be fined 100,000 baht.

Where to register a drone in Thailand

How does registration of the drones in Thailand look like?

After I applied for the registration of the drones in Bangkok, Thailand, I received a registration document on the mailing address specified in the application form in 5 working days.
The registration document is the questionnaire in the Thai language that we fill in - the difference is only what is now on it: the red seal, the necessary signatures and the date.

Feedback on obtaining registration, insurance and licenses for a drone for flights in Thailand


Due to the fact that at the time when I did the necessary documents for flying in Thailand, the information was not enough - it was easier for me to go to Bangkok and file all the documents in one place. 
You can also file all documents remotely by mail, but it's not my personal experience - I learned all the information for you from those people who are doing it directly in the office of DJI Service. 
After all documents are processed, they are sent by courier to the appropriate authorities and return to the office of DJI Service, then sent to the address specified in the application form to the owner. 
The staff of DJI Service were very kind and attentive and all the forms in the Thai language were filled for me, for which they are very thankful!
That's all! All nice flights!
