Drone Laws in Oman
A list of drone regulations and links for drone pilots in Oman.
Can I fly a drone in Oman?
Oman is one of the few countries in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) where flying small unmanned aerial systems (sUAS) is allowed by law.
You’ll have to fill out an application form on the Public Authority for Civil Aviation (PACA) website and will need to meet minimum safety and security requirements for your application to be considered. The application fee costs a nominal fee and takes about a month to be processed.
Here’s a quote from the Director General of PACA, Anwar Al Raisi:
Anyone in Oman or abroad who wants to fly a drone in Oman can fill in the form, providing necessary details and the PACA will take it for further approval from other departments and get back to the client. In a best case scenario, it will take less than a month to obtain a license.

Obligatory “We Are Not Drone Lawyers” Notice
Since each country is responsible for regulating their own national airspace, drone regulations vary greatly from country to country around the world. The content on this page is not legal advice! We are not drone / aviation attorneys, and it goes without saying that it would be unreasonable to claim that we specialize in each and every country’s drone laws around the world.
If you plan to operate an sUAS in a country where you’re not familiar with the drone laws, we encourage you to work directly with the local civil aviation authority on any and all regulatory considerations. This page should be used for informational purposes only, and we hope that it helps you with your research.
