The resolution of the Cabinet of Ministers of Uzbekistan, published on September 13 on the Lex.uz website, sets out new rules for the use of unmanned aerial vehicles.

In the world, these devices are often used today for photo and video shooting of places that can only be reached from the air: for example, luxury residences, VIP parties or military bases.

The authorities of Uzbekistan banned the import and operation of drones in the country in 2015, under the threat of imposing fines and even imprisonment for two to ten years for repeated violations.

Drones will receive the numbers

In a decree issued yesterday by the Cabinet of Ministers of Uzbekistan it is said that unmanned aerial vehicles can be used, but only after their registration.

Permission to use drones is authorized to issue Gosavianadzor. To do this, you need to collect and file a large package of documents, then wait for a decision within ten days.

Data on all UAVs in Uzbekistan will be entered in the register, each drone will be given a registration number of five digits, which will have to be applied to the body of the device. In case of violation of the law, the owner of a drona will be easy to find.

Register will have everything that flies - not only drones, but also aircraft models, made in modeling classes.

The resolution states that only citizens of Uzbekistan over the age of 18 who are fit for health, know the legislation, have special training and the corresponding level of knowledge on the management of a drone can only run aircraft.

With kind regards,

Unfortunately, you cannot take a drone to Uzbekistan, even if you declare it.
