So I went to Lisbon a couple of weeks back. Portugal have pretty strict drone laws, but the main problem is you have to apply for a licence a few weeks ahead of time. And the forms you have to fill out are all in Portuguese.

The people don't seem to bother though, it is more of an administrational issue. If you pick your spots wisely and don't do anything stupid you should be okay.

This is at least what I got out of filming at 3 locations in and around Lisbon:


Have any questions or tips? Please speak out!

I’ve flown over Portimao, Alvor and Lagos with no issues, never knew you needed a licence
