Coronavirus (Covid-19)

We are temporarily unable to process any new applications for the grant of shotgun, firearms or explosives certificates. We're working through the backlog of applications we received prior to the most recent lockdown period when home visits were not possible. Visits have now resumed for both grant and renewal applications. Enquiry Officers will conduct a risk assessment and use appropriate personal protective equipment.

We hope to accept new applications from 21 June in line with the Government's Roadmap out of lockdown however this date is subject to review. Please contact us online if you have any questions
