Coronavirus (Covid-19)

In line with the current guidance on social distancing and non-essential travel we are temporarily unable to process any new applications for the grant of shotgun, firearms or explosives certificates (such applications require home visits). This will be kept under review as government guidance is updated. We are however currently still processing renewal applications but have ceased routinely visiting certificate holders until further notice. Please contact us online if you have any questions or consider there to be any exceptional circumstances.

Find out below how to apply for or renew a firearm, shotgun or explosives certificate. Whether you’re a firearm owner, firearm dealer, shooting club member or planning to travel with firearms, answer a few quick questions and we’ll guide you to the right form and everything you need to complete it.
