What are the legal requirements and procedures for taking rifles abroad?
I know we are required to have a European firearms licence (pass) to take rifles to EU countries but what is the requirement for USA, AFRICA and AUSTRALASIA?
I have been advised by another SD member that we will be required to get a embarkation condition added to our FAC allowing us to take the specific calibres out of the UK and that it is illegal to have firearms at UK airports without this condition. Do any SD members have experience on the correct requirements and procedures to export rifles outside the EU?
I know for example, that if we want to import firearms in to NZ that we apply to the NZ police for a temporary firearms permit when we arrive in NZ, but what are we required to have at Heathrow when we check in to leave the UK?
