Information about import permit applications

There can occasionally be a delay between an application for an import permit being submitted and it being available via the Police IT system. In order to improve our service in the processing of firearms permits, Police wish to hear from you if you have applied for a permit and have not received it within 40 days.

Please contact us at project.firearms@police.govt.nz providing the following information:

  • Name on the application
  • Firearms Licence Number
  • Permit number, if you have one, or a brief description of the permit details
  • Date of application
  • Police district where you lodged the application
