Drone regulation in Algeria

A reader of our blog traveled to Algeria and got his drone confiscated when entering the country. According to the officials, the import of unmanned aerial systems is only permitted with prior approval by the Ministry of National Defense. Apparently, foreigners do not receive this permission. Also, drones in Algeria are probably prohibited in general. If you get caught, even imprisonment threatens. Police and gendarmerie are familiar with the ban, so you will face penalties if you fly with a drone in Algeria and get caught.
