Explanatory Memorandum to Firearms (Northern Ireland) Order 2004

Article 15 – Visitors’ firearm permits

Provides that the holder of a visitor’s firearm permit may possess any firearm specified in the permit and possess, purchase or acquire any ammunition in accordance with the permit without the requirement of a firearm certificate. The Article requires that an application for a permit is made on behalf of a visitor by a person resident in Northern Ireland, who may make a group application for up to 20 persons.  This replaces the existing visitor’s firearm certificate procedure with arrangements similar to those in GB.
