Information about drone operations in North Korea

Providing drone data services in North Korea presents unique challenges due to the country's strict governance and isolation from the international community. The Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) has stringent controls over its airspace and the use of any aerial technology, including drones, by civilians or foreign entities.

Aviation and Drone Regulations in North Korea

The state controls all aspects of aviation within North Korea. Specific details on drone laws and regulations are not widely published or available to the international community. However, it is known that:

  • Unauthorized use of airspace, including by drones, is strictly prohibited.
  • Surveillance and military activities are closely monitored by the state, and any unauthorized aerial activity could be considered espionage.
  • There is likely to be no distinction between recreational and commercial drone use in terms of regulation and enforcement.

Potential Applications for Drone Technology

Operation of drones by foreign entities within North Korea is highly unlikely due to the political and regulatory environment. But if you have a use-case, we are happy to explore this further. Please reach out to for further information.

Navigating the North Korean Context

Given the current political climate and lack of diplomatic relations between North Korea and many countries, the practical deployment of drones by external organizations within the DPRK is not feasible. The country's airspace is among the most tightly controlled in the world, and any aircraft would be subject to immediate scrutiny.

GLOBHE’s Approach

GLOBHE respects the sovereignty and laws of all nations, including North Korea. As such, GLOBHE, adhering to international regulations and respecting the geopolitical sensitivities involved, is carefully navigating this space and all operations in North Korea through Globhe needs special attention.


The use of drone technology within North Korea by external entities is not likely possible under the current political and regulatory conditions. GLOBHE is committed to providing services where they can be legally and ethically conducted, in compliance with both local and international laws.
