Air Weapon Licensing Changes for Scotland

  • Written by Editor

Local News | Air Weapon Licencing Changes for Scotland | Andover & VillagesThe Scottish Government is introducing a new licensing system for most air weapons in Scotland.

From 31 December 2016, you will generally need a visitor permit to use, possess, purchase or acquire air weapons while in Scotland. This includes buying an air weapon, someone giving one to you, or simply having an air weapon in your possession. If you already hold a valid firearm and/or shotgun licence issued in England or Wales before 31 December, and you are not planning on buying a gun while in Scotland, you may not need a permit until your existing certificate expires or is renewed.

Applications for visitor permits (or full air weapon certificates) should be made to Police Scotland who will decide your application and deal with any questions you have about the process. You can download the appropriate application form from www.airweapon.scot or www.scotland.police.uk. When complete, it should be sent to Police Scotland at:

Air Weapons Team

Police Scotland

Clyde Gateway

2 French Street

Dalmarnock

Glasgow

G40 4EH

You can also get further information on air weapon licensing, including information on exemptions from the need to hold a certificate, at www.airweapon.scot
