Bahamas Regulates Drones for Commercial and Recreational Use

SAN JUAN – The Bahamian government announced Monday a set of regulations for the commercial and recreational use of drones, which have proliferated in the country.

The Ministry of Transport and Aviation said in a statement that the new norms require anyone wishing to import a drone into the Bahamas to first obtain a certificate of registration from the Civil Aviation Department.

The owner will need that certificate to obtain the release of the unmanned aircraft from the Customs Department.

Owners of drones already in the Bahamas have until Feb. 29 to register them with the Civil Aviation Department in order to avoid their confiscation by authorities.

“Owners or operators of drones will be required to accept full responsibility for any accidents, mishaps, injuries or damage which may result from their operation,” the government said.
