To be eligible to apply for a permit you must:
- provide proof of identity (if no other NSW firearms licence or permit is held or has been held)
- submit the application form with the requirement documentation
- submit a business declaration form
- submit a legitimate reason form with the required documentation
- pay any required fees.
If you have never held a firearms licence or permit in NSW, or you do not currently hold an equivalent issued firearms licence or permit interstate, you are required to complete a firearms safety training course and provide evidence of this with your application. Further eligibility criteria will vary depending on the type of permit you are applying for. Please see the attached documents for detailed information.
