Thread: Visitor's permit

    Visitor's permit

    I have a friend visiting from the States who wants to bring a rifle over so as to go stalking with me.
    My local force (Durham!!!) insist on seeing a copy of his American gun licence. This is a problem as in his area the are NOT required.
    Has anybody had any experience of this.
    I've had a look on the Home Office guidelines but there is no mention of needing to see the visitors home country licence.

    I dont know the legal ins and outs of this sort of situation, but I'd definitely give BASC a call about it! They probably can offer some good advice on how to proceed.

    Good idea - I've already emailed a query to the NRA (American one).

    He will need to contact his local police force who will provide him with a letter.
    I'm sure he hasn't got anything to hide, but any felony and he will be out of luck.
    Cheers

    He's the retired chief of police in his area!

    OK I done this in the past he will need a letter from his local chief of police, the fact that he is a retired police officer
    makes no difference.
