Weapons permits for individuals

European Firearms Pass

The European Firearms Pass allows an individual to travel from one EU member state to another with a weapon, temporarily and upon the existence of a relevant invitation.

Under the European Firearms Pass a natural person may convey a weapon within the European Union as follows:

  • weapons classified in category C if the person is travelling to another Member State to engage in hunting or historical re-enactments
  • weapons classified in categories A, B, or C if the person is travelling to another Member State to engage in shooting sports.

You can apply for a Firearms Pass if you have been issued a weapons permit or a permit to carry a weapon.
