Firearms Licensing

Applying For or Renewing a Certificate

Application forms are available from the link at the bottom of this page, but before you begin to download and complete forms, you must read this important guidance:

  1. Certificate holders are responsible for their own renewals and must allow adequate time to apply for a certificate. You will receive notification that your certificate is about to expire approximately 16 weeks before and we recommend that you begin the renewal process immediately.
  2. Application forms can be downloaded on the link below.

Firearms Licensing Fees

The Firearms Licensing Unit is currently experiencing a high volume of applications and as such delays are inevitable. The Licensing Unit will strive to ensure your renewal is granted prior to the expiry date of your certificate and would request that your renewal paperwork is received at the earliest opportunity.
