Drone Flying Regulations in the Maldives
Resort or island approval is required
If you're staying on a nearby island, you'll need permission to operate a drone from the local island authority. Most resorts have specified zones where drones can be flown without intruding others' privacy. Check with your guesthouse or lodging provider to get approval from your local island council.
MNDF and CAA approval is required
Before you fly the drone, you must get permission from the Maldives National Defense Force (MNDF). This is possible if you obtain permission from your resort or the island council. You're ready to fly your drone once you've received approval from the CAA. To get the best panoramic photos of the island and water, fly during the day. Alternatively, you may try to get a beautiful sunset or dawn photo.
