Drone Entering the UK

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

I'm from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. I'm planning to travel to Greece for a holiday and my flight will land at London Heathrow and will stay for couple of days in the city before flying off to Athens for a week and back to London and will stay for few days in before depart back to Malaysia.
I'll be bringing DJI Spark. I will not be flying my drone in London or any parts of the UK and only be flying in Greece (Athens & Santorini)
My question is, do I need to register for a permit to bring in my drone into the UK since I'm not planning to fly? Also, information on Greece would be much appreciated.

Hi @Edly

Welcome to the UAV Coach Community Forum! Based on my interpretation of the laws, you would not need any prior permission/permit to bring your drone into the UK. It looks like permission is only required when a commercial operation will be conducted. 

Here are the drone laws for the UK: 


and for Greece: 


I hope this helps, have a safe trip!
