Armenia bans unlicensed use of cameras, including drones at borders


YEREVAN, MARCH 18, ARMENPRESS. The Armenian government approved amendments to the Law on State Border and the Administrative Offense Code making it illegal for anyone to use photo-video devices, including drones, to film “the territory of the bordering country”, or the engineering facilities, buildings, surveillance towers and transportation equipment used by border guards in the “border layer” in Armenian territory unless having a special permit issued by the National Security Service.

The amendments will specify the grounds for imposing administrative liability for people who’d violate the rules of entering or residing in “border layers”.
