European Firearms Pass

GB residents who want to travel to the EU with their firearms or shotguns can no longer apply for a European Firearms Pass (EFP).  You can no longer use an existing EFP to travel to the EU with your firearm or shotgun.

Instead, you should check the firearms licensing requirements of the EU country you’re travelling to or through, ahead of travelling.  You need to apply for consent in line with these requirements and applicable import/export controls.  These requirements also apply if you will be in an EU country with your firearm covered by an EFP.

How do I apply for a pass?
To obtain a European Firearms Pass please send your request in writing, with your details and state which guns you require on the pass.  Please provide one passport sized photograph of you.

Where do I send my request?

Requests should be sent to:

Firearm Licensing Unit

Suffolk Constabulary

Portal Avenue

Martlesham Heath




How long will it take?
You will need to allow 14 days for us to deal with your request.
