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.
