All Drone Laws in Sweden for 2020 (Complete Guide)
Drone laws in Sweden are governed by the Transport Agency of Sweden which clearly states that drones are legal in the country.
In 2018, there was a modification in the laws in regard to the use of cameras. In addition, the law has undergone significant simplification removing most of the bureaucratic registration hurdles that mired past laws.

Besides the fact that there's a few classes of classification by weight alone, you should not worry most of the time, as DJI drones fall under most of these categories.
So, how are drones classified in Sweden?
At the moment, there isn’t much of a distinction between commercial and recreational drone use. However, the law creates 5 unique classes that require a special permit for either:
Class 1 – Drones weighing less than 7 Kg, and fly within the pilot’s direct line of sight
Class 2 – Drones weighing between 7-25 Kg and fly within pilots line of sigh
Class 3 – Drones within the 25-150 Kg weight bracket flying within visual sight
Class 4 – Drones flying past the visual line of sight
- A Flying 120 meters above the surface in close proximity to obstacles and buildings
- B Flying beyond visual line of sight but close to the observer
- C Operations that do not belong to this category.
- Changes in the law exempt all category 1 drones from undergoing mandatory registration
