New Zealand’s Firearms Registry will hold details about all licence holders and their arms items. Find out when you’re required to provide information, how to register, and how to get help if you need it.

Review of the Firearms Registry

The review is being carried out by the Ministry of Justice during 2024

You must keep complying with your legal obligations during this time. The law has not changed. You are still required to enter and update your details in the Registry when you have an activating circumstance.
