Wanting to travel within the EU with your firearm(s).
Directive 2008/51/EC The European Firearms Pass ( EFP) is a locally-issued licence in a common format that allows citizens of the European Union (EU) to travel with one or more firearm(s) mentioned on the licence from one member state to another.
For certain purposes other documentation may be required, depending on the current states’ laws and the reason for the movement; a transfer may be temporary (for a competition) or permanent (on a sale)
An applicant for an EFP must already hold a licence from the member state in which he/she holds the firearm.
A “European firearms pass” shall be issued on request, by the authorities of a Member State to a person lawfully entering into possession of and using a firearm. It shall be valid for a maximum period of five years, which may be extended, and shall contain the information set out in Annex II.
It shall be non-transferable and shall record the firearm or firearms possessed and used by the holder of the pass. It must always be in the possession of the person using the firearm and any change in the possession or characteristics of the firearm, as well as the loss or theft thereof, shall be indicated on the pass.”
