How to apply for a firearm, shotgun or explosives certificate
Please note, a completed GP form must accompany all grant and renewal applications. Applications made without a GP form will probably be returned and refunded.
We are currently working through the backlog of applications received prior to the most recent lockdown period when home visits were not possible. Grant applicants will probably experience some delays.
Home visits have now resumed for both grant and renewal applications. Enquiry Officers will conduct a risk assessment and use appropriate personal protective equipment.
Please contact us online if you have any questions.
