Once you have completed the course and have your club membership you will need to send this to the NSWFAR.
Step 5 - Waiting Period and Processing Time
Once the NSWFAR receives your paperwork it will take approximately 6 weeks (includes 28 mandatory waiting period) before you receive your Photographic Advice. Once you receive this you will be required to attend a NSW Roads & Maritime office for a photo and your licence to be issued.
A personal firearms licence is issued for 2 or 5 years.
2 year licence = $100
5 year licence = $200
Step 6 - Complete Permits to Aquire (PTA)
For every single firearm you wish to buy, you must complete a Permit to Aquire application. PTA forms are only available at your local firearms dealer.
PTA's can take up to 5 weeks for a first permit in A & B Category due to the waiting period of 28 days. Subsequent PTA's can be received in 7+ Days (Average about 14 Days)
