FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
FLA discontinues issuance of individual import permits
KINGSTON, Jamaica. November 12, 2018 – The Firearm Licensing Authority (FLA) seeks to advise the public that we will no longer be granting import permits to individuals for the importation of their own firearms. All approved applicants seeking to acquire firearms should consult exclusively with a Licensed Firearm Dealer for purchase.
The list of all FLA Approved Firearm Dealers and their contact details are issued with letters of approval and is also available on the FLA’s website. The office can be contacted for additional information on Dealers if needed.
This measure taken will come into effect immediately and as such all relevant parties are expected to abide by the changes stipulated. Please be guided that all persons seeking exemptions are asked to contact the Ministry of National Security directly.
This new policy direction of the Authority, in its effort to ensure that the policy and procedures stipulated by the Ministry of National Security are adhered to, will be fully enforced. FLA continues in its stance to ensure transparency by way of restoring trust with the public and building integrity.
