The Firearms Registry will send you a notification advising you to lodge your reapplication online when your licence is within 90 days of expiring.
You must lodge your reapplication before the licence expiry date. This is necessary so that your authority to possess or use firearms under your current licence will continue, while your reapplication is being processed.
If you want to delete a genuine reason and/or category from your current licence, you need to complete Delete a Firearm Category or Genuine Reason during Licence Reapplication – PDF before you reapply.
The Firearms Registry will notify you when the change/s have been made and you can then go ahead with your reapplication.
If your firearms licence is due to expire within the next 5 working days, it's recommended that you contact the Firearms Registry before you request any changes.Reapply online
