    Thank you very much for that explanation. I am a Kenyan living abroad and I would like to bring my small drone (DJI Mini 2) on holidays. What can you advise me to do? The drone weighs only 249 grams but it has a camera. I know you know that. What is the registration fee to fly a drone under 250 grams in 2021? Thank you very much

    Hi do you know how much it costs to buy the license? And if there is like a weight limit on how heavy the drone is?

    It’s funny that anything you wanna do with the drone, you gotta inform the kcaa. I wish 100,000 Kenyans will all buy a drone in one week and all line up to the kcaa.

    And if I want to buy a toy drone with no camera

    Haha. Read the 6.1.a again. It says "Kenyan Citizen or *RESIDENT in KENYA* of minimum age of eighteen years"

    That applies to ALL foreigners who are in Kenya. If you’re physically in Kenya, you’re technically a resident. The law doesn’t mention what TYPE of resident you are, whether refugee, tourist, with temporal resident permit or whatnot.

    Such clauses are thrown in to allow the spinning of the law. Ghana drone regulations have something similar too.

    In summary, foreigners can own and operate a drone as long as they abide by the other parts of the laws you mentioned. A foreigner doesn’t need a kenyan citizen or company to operate a drone

    Ooh nice. I noticed the FPV footage. You own an FPV drone? I’m currently in Kenya and looking to buy one, preferably an RTF one. Where can I get an fpv to buy in Kenya? I’m in Kiambu at the moment

    hello does this mean that if ibuy a drone that costs only 8k I will still need to register with KCAA?

  12. Terrence Maina on June 24, 2021 at 11:30 pm

    Excuse me, have these rules and draft charges been approved by the parliament

  13. Hussein k on June 24, 2021 at 11:32 pm

    Any changes on the rules so far? Especially regarding the registration wen importing a drone into kenya? Suppose i am to order it thru a third party like kentex cargo. Then on whose name is it registered?

    Wow, thanks for this. I wish the laws were less restrictive without all the bureaucracies so that we can push innovation faster.
