How do I obtain a category H firearms licence?

You may request a licence application and genuine reason form online from the NSW Firearms Registry, or you may call the NSW Firearms Registry on 1300 362 562 to make application.

You must provide your name, address, NSW drivers licence and date of birth details and you will need to state your genuine reason for obtaining a firearms licence as 'sport/target shooting' and the category of licence as 'category H'.

You must complete your application, sign it, attend the Club and ensure all Club fees are paid in full and the relevant Official may sign to support your genuine reason and return it with all supporting documentation including your Safe Handling Course completion certificate to the:

Firearms Registry
Locked Bag 1
Murwillumbah NSW 2484

Your application, when received, will be reviewed and you will be informed of the outcome, usually within 6 - 8 weeks.
