How to apply for a firearm, shotgun or explosives certificate
Due to high demand, we may not be able to turn your application around within 12 weeks. If there's no immediate requirement for a certificate, we advise you to wait as your GP report is only valid for six months. If we're unable to process your application within that time, you may need to provide a further medical history update, which will unfortunately be at your expense. Find out more about applying.
