Hi I will be traveling to Guatemala in March with a DJI Mavic Mini for an Engineers Without Borders project. Does anyone have experience with getting the permit for taking a drone through customs in Guatemala? Any advice, experience, or who to contact? Thanks

If no one comes back to you here, this is the official airspace page for drone requirements . . .


It is in Spanish apparently, but I managed to get a reasonable translation from google automatically.
It does look a bit short on info.

Try this one updated Dec 2019 . . .

And a search here revealed this thread from Dec 2019, a Member going to Guatemala just this January, so you might be able to tag him or send a message by conversation tab. (You only have one post, not sure conversation will work for you yet, better to tag him in this or the other thread.)

I am headed for Guatemala in a week, but have not started looking into this. I'll be in Antigua and Tikal. Apparently Tikal is a no fly zone, but I hope to do some in the Antigua area. If I learn anything, I'll get back to you, and would welcome any wisdom you pick up.

How was your trip to Guatemala? Any issues or details with transporting a drone I should know? What type of drone did you bring? I will also be in Antigua for part of the trip. I will bring my Mavic Mini in my backpack.
