RPAS Registration

ALL camera equipped drones operated by foreign visitors
and non-indigenous ni-vanuatu MUST be registered with the
Vanuatu Cultural Centre.

There is no distinction between 'recreational / personal use' on holiday or 'commercial use' by professionals for small drones (under 25 Kgs).

ALL RPAS Operations and RPA (drones) in Vanuatu need to fly in accordance with Civil Aviation Authority Vanuatu Rules Part 101.

RPAS (drones) that cannot comply with Part 101 must seek authorisation to operate from the Director of Civil Aviation.


* All non-resident foreign drones and operators SHOULD Be Registered At Least 2 WEEKS Prior to arrival in Vanuatu and will be checked at Customs

- arriving with unregistered drones could cause major delays to your plans and be held by the Authorities - if in doubt ~ declare it !

* False or misleading information will invalidate your Registrations !
