Drone regulation in North Korea

North Korea has a totalitarian regime that controls all journalistic activities in the country. If you want to shoot in North Korea, you need the government’s approval. Also, you will be accompanied by watchers who make sure that you only travel on a given route.

For this reason, it is very likely that drones are banned in North Korea. I could not find an official source for that, but common sense suggests it. If you want to try anyway, then you should request in advance to the government. Without prior consultation, I would never travel to North Korea with a drone.
