If you plan to visit Australia to participate in an approved shooting activity in Victoria you must have an international visitors permit. International visitors permits issued by other States or Territories of Australia will also be recognised in Victoria. Approved shooting activities include:
- shooting competitions
- use in primary production (farming)
A permit is necessary for each visit and for each person who intends to use a gun while in Victoria. You will also require an import permit if you intend to bring your own firearm, ammunition, parts or accessories. You should submit both applications four weeks before your visit.
Interstate firearms holders are permitted to possess and use firearms in Victoria for approved firearms activities.
Please contact Victoria Police for information on whether your interstate licence authorises the activities you intend to undertake in Victoria.
