Egyptian authorities have banned the entry into the country of quadcopters for video and photography. According to the internal law on state security of the country, the import of aerodrons for aerial photography into the territory of the Arab Republic of Egypt is prohibited. The ban applies to airdrones, quadrocopters and similar aircraft, which will be seized when customs officers attempt to import during inspections at airports in Egypt. The withdrawn equipment will be returned to the owners upon departure from the country.
