Mohammed Issues Law Regulating Drone Activity
The law aims to reduce risks associated with drone activity and specifies the duties and responsibilities of relevant authorities in Dubai

In his capacity as Ruler of Dubai, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE, has issued Law No. 04 of 2020, outlining the regulations governing drone activity in Dubai.

The Law aims to reduce risks associated with drone activity and specifies the duties and responsibilities of relevant authorities. The new Law also seeks to help Dubai promote itself as a hub for drone manufacturing, smart transportation and innovation in the sector, and enable public and private entities to use drones and provide drone-related services.

The Law applies to the activity of all types of drones across Dubai and its free zones. Drones that are used for military purposes are exempted from this Law. However, they should coordinate with the Dubai Civil Aviation Authority to ensure safety and avoid endangering civil aviation operations.
