Firearms Registry and MyFirearms

As of 24 June 2023, New Zealand has a firearms registry. Firearm licence holders are required to provide information about themselves and their arms items to the Registry.

For more information on licence holders’ obligations, go to Registry on the Te Tari Pūreke website.

The Registry is part of MyFirearms, a secure, online portal where licence holders can register their firearms and apply for and manage their firearms licensing.

New applicants can apply for their firearms licence through MyFirearms.

Licence holders can also notify us of a change of address, circumstance, or a change of health practitioner through MyFirearms.
