An ammunition permit entitles the holder to transfer and import to Finland the cartridges and projectiles stated in the permit.

A permit granted in Norway, Sweden, Iceland or Denmark for the possession of a firearm or firearm component entitles the holder to transfer and import to Finland the firearm and firearm component stated in the permit, and a sufficient amount of cartridges suitable for use with the firearm stated in the permit, and to possess them for a maximum period of three months of their transfer or import to Finland. The requirement is that the purpose of the transfer or import is to participate in a shooting or hunting event organised in Norway, Sweden, Iceland, Denmark or Finland.
