Residential Requirement for Firearms Licence

1. The law does not require that applicants for a Firearms Licence be New Zealand citizens living in New Zealand or have permanent residence status. The determining factor is that they and their referees are available for vetting.

2. A person "ordinarily resident in New Zealand" as defined in Section 4, Crimes Act 1961 may be suitable for consideration.

3. Any person visiting New Zealand for a period not exceeding 12 months may make
application for a Visitors Firearms Licence. Regular visitors to New Zealand are to be encouraged to obtain a standard Firearms Licence. See also Section 2.37 of this Manual.
