Drone Laws in Guatemala

Drone regulations and links for people flying drones in Guatemala.

drone laws in GuatemalaThere Don’t Seem to Be Any Drone Laws in Guatemala

We haven’t found any drone laws for Guatemala in our research.

That being said, we don’t recommend assuming that you can travel to Guatemala and fly your drone.

The absence of drone laws doesn’t necessarily mean you can fly wherever or however you like in Guatemala—in fact, it could mean that authorities will be generally opposed to the use of drones, especially by tourists.

The same cautionary note applies to bringing a drone through customs. Sometimes, when a country has no drone-specific laws, some customs officials choose to confiscate drones and some choose not to—but it’s almost impossible to know what you’ll run into until you’re actually there with your drone.

For countries that do have drone / sUAS regulations, it’s typically the country’s national or civil aviation authority that sets and enforces those regulations. To make sure you don’t get in trouble or get your drone taken away, we recommend contacting the Guatemala Directorate General of Civil Aeronautics (GDGCA): +502 2321 5000 / Facebook / Twitter

We are not international aviation attorneys and do our best to keep this page up-to-date for drone pilots, but the reality is that given the pace of the small unmanned aerial system (sUAS) industry and how governments are responding, drone regulations in Guatemala can change throughout the year, and those changes can be hard to track. If we missed something, please reach out to let us know.
