Cuba Drone Laws
Drone laws are constantly changing. Always verify using multiple sources to be sure you're rightly informed.
Drone use is currently banned in Cuba without permission. Do not attempt to bring a drone into the country without prior permission as you will have your drone retired, and could possibly be arrested if you use it with no permission.
If you have received permission, there are several drone laws that need to be followed when flying in the country. Operators must ensure that they follow the following drone laws when flying in Cuba,
A drone permit is required for recreational drone usage.
Before flying an unmanned aerial system in Cuba legally, you need to undergo a lengthy approval process that requires at least five different authorizations.
This paperwork depends on institutions such as Cuba’s Civil Aviation Authority (IACC), the Armed Forces, the Ministry of Interior, the local government in every place you’re filming, and even from the Ministry of Science or the City Historian’s Office in some cases. Responses (positive or negative) can take over 6 weeks to arrive.

For a detailed guide to bringing your drone on airplanes click here. All drones should be brought on carry on luggage if possible. This is because according to the Montreal Convention, airlines are only liable for losses up to ±$1,600 USD (1,131 SDR). When traveling internationally, theft and lost luggage can be common issues, particularly if your flight has many connections.
If your drone is worth more than $1,000 USD and you cannot bring it onto the plane you should consider shipping it with DHL, FedEx, or UPS instead and fully insure the shipment.
You should NOT place drone batteries in your checked baggage. All drone batteries should be placed in a Medium Size LiPo Battery Bag like the one shown here in the link and brought onto the plane in your carry on bag. Lithium-ion batteries are considered “dangerous goods” by airlines and rules surrounding these batteries on planes are EXTREMELY strict due to multiple incidents of these batteries catching fire.
Failure to properly pack lithium-ion batteries in a bag such as the one shown in the link above can result in the airline seizing them, you getting fined, or being denied boarding.
Did you know that airlines only have maximum liability coverage for flights by the Montreal Convention of approximately ±$1,600 USD (1,131 SDR)? This is the most that airlines must pay a passenger or company for a lost, damaged, or delayed package or bag.
