Visiting Norway

In Norway you are allowed to fly in the open category without applying to us for a permit. However, you must do the following:

Citizens from EU countries

  • Be registered as a drone operator in your home country. There is no distinction between flying for fun or for commercial use.
  • Have a valid EASA certificate for the relevant subcategory.
    (The Norwegian A1/A3-course and exam are available in English at flydrone.no.)
  • Mark the drone with your operator number. A QR-code containing your operator number can also be used. The number on your pilot certificate is not valid as marking.
  • Have valid liability insurance. There is no distinction between flying for fun or for commercial use.
  • Follow the rules of the open category.
  • Check if drone flying is permitted in the area before taking off.
