Travelling with weapons

The airline you will be flying with, should be contacted in advance if you want to take hunting or competition weapons with when traveling.

Be in good time since the weapon must be checked by airport personnel.

Permits and Forms

If you travel to another EU country, you must have a valid firearms pass a firearms license and hunting license, which is controlled at the airport.

If you are traveling to a country outside the EU, besides the valid firearms pass you need to show a completed weapons declaration (A + B), which can be downloaded at this link on Police website

You must also fill out a weapon form, which can be downloaded here.

To save time, you can benefit from completing both forms before you arrive at the airport. Forms are also handed out at the airport.

• Weapons and ammunition are not allowed in hand luggage, and therefore needs to be incorporated as check-in luggage;

 • If possible the weapon should be separated and packed in different pieces of luggage;

 • Ammunition must be packed separately from the weapon in a separate secured suitcase;

 • The ammunition must not exceed a net weight of 5 kg.
