You will require this permit if you are a current firearm licence holder, and you intend to acquire a new firearm. If you are not a current firearm licence holder, you can lodge a firearms licence application form along with the application for a permit to acquire a firearm. Both handguns and long arms must be registered. You must have a genuine reason for obtaining the firearm, for example:
- for target shooting
- working in security
- being a collector
- because the firearm is an heirloom.
Please consult the responsible agency for more information regarding eligibility requirements.
