As a warning for all new CCW applications, listening any firearms that cannot be concealed or not on your previous application will result in an automatic denial. Department of Correction employees may receive permits under the LEO-issued system from the rank of Corporal.

Update 22/MAY/2013:

Rather than an update, this is a reminder: If you previous held a CCW from before 1 December 2012, you need to re-apply for a new license as it is no longer valid. This is now also true for PF licenses.

The licensing desk has been re-opened, with the inclusion of a Guard Card section to validate the usage of exposed firearms while on guard duty. As part of the process of obtaining the permit, you will be provided grounded training on how to function as a security guard through the mandatory attendance of a course and examination.

Likewise, the denial waiting time period for ALL permits has been increased to three days. Once more, thank you for being patient.

Update 28/MAR/2014:

The PF application form's warning on the OOC abuse of firearms licences has been expanded. Make sure that you thoroughly read the warning and detail a proper acknowledgement when you apply. License abuse is a serious issue and you will be banned if caught doing such.

Update 7/MAR/2015:

The Personal Protection Permit Section has now closed, current applications will be reviewed and handled accordingly. All applications submitted from this date onward will be automatically denied and potentially banned if the applicant repeatedly applies for a license during the closure period.

There is no time estimate as to when the applications will re-open, however, it will be relatively soon.

Thank you for your continued cooperation.
