bringing my drone (dji phantom) to myanmar

Hi all,

I have a DJI Phantom quadcopter and I love to fly and take aerial videos/photos.

I have checked the Myanmar Custom's page @ myanmarcustoms.gov.mm/passengerdeclaration.a…

they mention that import of such equipment is not allowed, however, there have been reports of people being able to take them into the country without any issues.

I don't want to risk them confiscating my drone..

Any advise greatly appreciated!

If the Myanmar government says it's a prohibited import, why are you even asking this question here? Make an effort to fit in.

If you fancy it being confiscated and a few days in a Burmese jail then bring one in or, as Luigi says, use common sense and forget it.

HEY! I decided not to. However, when I was in Bagan, i was telling my tour guide about my quadcopter and he said lots of people fly around bagan!

Then at Mt. Popa I saw some french guy filming with his dji 800/1000 for french television. He said he had to get approval from local authorities in advance...

I brought a DJI Phantom to Myanmar in November 2014. I arrived at Yangon International and then flew domestically to Sittwe, Mandalay, and Nyaung U, running my backpack through the xray at each departure and arrival. Not once did they open my backpack to even take a look. Your mileage may vary.

Awesome videos.
