Responding to a warning from the National Broadcasting and Telecommunication Commission, drone users on Thursday started to bring their drones to NBTC branch offices for registration.

It was reported that some drone users showed up at the NBTC branch office in Lampang for registration whereas, at the branch office in Muang district of Phitsanuloke, some drone users approached police stations but were told that the stations were not ready yet to accept registration and were told to go to the NBTC office.

Under an announcement issued by the NBTC, drone users must register their devices in 90 days as of October 11, failing that they will face a 5-year jailterm and/or 100,000 baht in fine.
