Change of Address or Personal Details

Regulation 9 of the Firearms Regulation 1974 places an obligation on the holder of a Firearms Licence or permit to provide a written notice in any of the following events:

  1. a change in holder’s name;
  2. a change in the holder’s place of residence; and
  3. a change in the storage arrangements for a firearm to which the licence or permit relates.

These changes can only be made by the completion and submission of a Change of Personal Details form available on the Online Services page of this website.

Where Firearms Licence holders possess a MDL or MVL, a Change of Personal Details (C4) form must be completed and submitted to the Department of Transport.

N.B. Licensing Services (Firearms) cannot process address or name changes where holders possess an MDL or MVL – this must be undertaken through DOT.
