Drone Laws in Iran

Drone Laws in Iran

The current legal situation concerning drone use in Iran is not clear. There are now numerous reports of drone users who had unpleasant experiences. It is therefore not advisable to bring your drone into the country unless you are able to obtain permission.

In Iran, it can happen very quickly that you are arrested while using GPS-enabled devices or cameras. The Iranian security authorities are quick to assume that you have entered the country as a spy .

If you still decide to take your drone to Iran, then you should think twice about where to use your copter. In any case, you should leave the drone on the ground at the following locations (the list is not exhaustive):

Tehran (complete drone ban)
Near military facilities
Near (nuclear) power plants
Near police stations

In particular, in the regions of Busher, Natanz, Qom, Arak, and Isfahan there were already incidents in which spy allegations were raised because of the use of drones.

If you would like to enter Iran with a drone, then please inform yourself about the current safety regulations via the Foreign Office.

If you want to be on the safe side, contact the competent aviation authority. Alternatively, you can also ask the embassy in your country for further information about the regulations.
