Travelling Abroad With Your Gun
European firearms requirements if there’s no Brexit deal
UK residents who want to travel to the EU with their firearms or shotguns will no longer be able to apply for a European Firearms Pass (EFP) if the UK leaves the EU without a deal.
Instead, you should check the firearms licensing requirements of the EU country you’re travelling to, ahead of travelling. These requirements will also apply if you will be in an EU country with your firearm, covered by a EFP, when we leave the EU.
You should continue to apply to your local UK police force for a visitor’s permit if you’re sponsoring an EU visitor who is bringing a firearm to the UK. Permits issued before the UK leaves the EU will remain valid until they expire.
EFPs will not be recognised for EU visitors to the UK and sponsors will no longer be required to show a valid EFP.
