(PR/BGIS) — Residents of Barbados will have to wait even longer to use drones.

A release via the Barbados Government Information Service today said the temporary suspension on the importation and licensing of remotely piloted aircraft systems has been extended for another 12 months.

It went into effect on April 1.

According to the Ministry of Tourism and International Transport, the Cabinet of Barbados also approved a temporary exemption on a case-by-case basis for drones that are imported and exported immediately after usage.

This suspension has been in place since March 1, 2016.

The ministry is actively working on a new legislative framework to regulate the use of drones and to integrate them into Barbados’ national airspace system, the release added. (BGIS/SAT)
