Following an announcement made by the National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission (NBTC) on Wednesday drone owners will have a 90 day period starting on Friday (October 13) to register their drones.
The Secretary General of the NBTC Takorn Tantasith said that the decision for drone registration is a result of the increasing number of drones being used in the kingdom of which only roughly 350 have been registered with the Civil Aviation of Thailand (CAT).
For those who need to register a drone it can be done at the NBTC head office in Bangkok or multiple branches across the nation at police stations or any CAT office.
For those who do not register their drones and are caught using one after the 90 day registration period they could face a fine of up to 100,000 baht and or up to five years in prison.
A complete ban has been issued for drone use within a 19-kilometer radius of the upcoming Royal cremation ceremonies being held in Bangkok starting on October 25.
