Translated content:

Article 30:

Import of small arms and light weapons and/or ammunition is only allowed for persons holding a license to trade in firearms and/or ammunition.

The authorisation, referred to above, provides the kind and quantity of firearms and ammunition allowed for import.

This quantity cannot exceed the difference between the maximum stockpile of firearms and ammunition that the dealer is entitled to hold and the actual stockpile held at the time of the authorisation's request.

[Note: This is the Proposed Act to amend the Ordinance 'Law No 085/035 of September 3, 1985, on the Regime of Arms and Ammunition', in line with the Nairobi Protocol for the Prevention, Control and Reduction of Small Arms and Light Weapons. The first 30 articles of the 2010 Proposed Act are relatively unchanged from the 1985 Law.]
