Backlog in 2017/18 Applications

The Firearm Licensing Authority (FLA) takes this opportunity to advise individuals with pending applications from 2016 through 2018, that we are currently experiencing some delays with receiving external security background clearance reports on applicants. As such, we are working closely with our external agencies to rectify the issues. It is important to note, that if there are adverse reports received with these security clearances, this may extend the period of investigation.

We thank you for your patience thus far, and would be grateful for your continued patience in this regard. Please expect a decision on your application within the next three months.
