Permit to Authorise Storage of Firearms in NSW - New South Wales


You will need this permit if you live outside of NSW and intend to store firearms in NSW on a permanent basis. The firearms you intend to store must be registered in the State or Territory of residence.

Because your firearms are registered outside of NSW, NSW Police do not have a record of details relating to identity locations, number and type of firearms and storage details. This permit is required so that details are recorded, and safe keeping is ensured.

Service type


A licence defines the need to obtain recognition / certification and registration to undertake a certain business activity.

Eligibility requirements

You must hold an interstate firearms licence or permit to be eligible.

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.
