Norfolk Police’s Firearms Licensing Unit is responsible for the issue of certificates, permits and advice for firearms, shotguns and explosives.


Applicants for the new grant of firearms & shotgun certificates

In response to Government advice around social contact the Firearms Licensing Unit is withdrawing from personal home visits.  A home visit is a requirement for all new certificate grant applicants and therefore we cannot accept new grant applications at this difficult time.  We apologise for any inconvenience but you will understand that this measure is necessary for everyone’s safety  We ask that applications for new certificate grants are not made until such time as the present risk from the Coronavirus is reduced.  Please monitor our website for updates on this situation.   

Applications for renewal of existing certificate should be made as normal.
