    Q318: How do I get a visitor’s permit?

    Such permits can only be issued to people visiting Great Britain. They are obtained from the chief officer of police for an area and must be applied for by a resident in that area on behalf of a bona fide visitor to Great Britain. They can only be granted if the visitor is a fit and proper person who has good reason to possess a firearm, shotgun, ammunition etc. Conditions can be imposed as with a normal firearms certificate.
