Travelling to the EU with firearms

Northern Ireland firearm certificate holders need to be aware of measures that will apply when the UK transition period ends. From 1 January 2021, residents of Northern Ireland will still be able to request a European Firearms Pass (EFP) or use one to travel to an EU country, including the Republic of Ireland, with their lawfully owned firearms.

There is a minor change if a NI resident is sponsoring an EU visitor travelling to NI. An application should still be made to PSNI for a visitor permit like now, but the visitor will not be required to produce a valid EFP. Visitor permits issued before the transition period ends will stay valid until they expire.

If you have any further queries regarding your EFP or travelling with firearms, please contact the BASC NI office on 02892 605050, or email
