Laws on Drone Use in Iceland
Q: We will be returning to Iceland this summer. I want to bring my drone to get aerial videos and photos of our trip. What restrictions or problems might I face with not only the customs authority but with the civil authorities?
A: According to RÚV, there are not yet any special laws on the use of drones in Iceland.
Drone specialist Richard Yeo said in a speech on the issue in Iceland in January that the United States has the strictest laws on the use of drones. In his opinion, it is important to ensure that the law is not too strict while also ensuring that it does not allow for misuse of the technology.
