The Firearms Regulation 2017 has a number of permits which can be issued for specific legitimate reasons. However, where a legitimate reason for possession and use of a firearm exists, but the legislation does not provide a specific licence or permit and it is considered appropriate, a permit can be approved and issued under section 28(g) of the Firearms Act 1996.


The application and legitimate reason forms are interactive. You must complete both forms, then print and return both forms with any requested documentation to the Firearms Registry, Locked Bag 5102, Parramatta NSW 2124.
