How do I register my drone in Barbados?

How do I register my drone in Barbados?

You must purchase a radio license from the Telecoms Unit for your drone. 

Take your drone (or the drone specification document if your drone is held at Customs) to the Telecomms Unit at Trinity Business Centre in Bridgetown. You will need to pay the $30BDS annual fee for your license.

The Telecomms Unit has currently suspended the issue of new licenses while the drone importation ban is in effect. It is expected that you will be able to apply for new licenses from April 2nd, 2018.

20th April 2018 Update: While no official word has been released of the expiry of the drone ban, measures seem to be have been put in place to allow the importation of drones. Your drone will still likely be held at customs on entry, you then take the drone specification to the Telecoms Unit, apply for a license at which point they give you a letter for the CAA and the Ministry of Defense & Security. You can then go and collect your drone from customs, with your license and pass the letters to the CAA/Minisitry of Defense. We will update these details as and when an official statement is made.

You must also inform the Ministry of Defense & Security and Civil Aviation Authority of your drone.
