An Import Authorization, comprised of either an original permit or an original certificate issued by the foreign government authorizing the import of specified items, must accompany each application. An Import Authorization normally contains an official signature, government seal, and the validity period of the transaction. This is not to be confused with a business license issued by the foreign government to firearms dealers or with a government authorization for individuals to own or carry a firearm. This information is to be supplied as a copy of the original document or certified copy of a duly-issued Import Authorization and must be maintained in the applicant’s file. “Certified Copy” means a copy of an original document certified by a competent official bearing the statement “certified copy,” an original signature, seal of the certificate, and date of certification. Import Authorizations may only be used once. The complete authorization must be fulfilled in one-license application. The information on the Import Authorization should match the information listed on the export application and the purchase order. A written explanation is required for any application that does not include an Import Authorization (e.g., letter from importing government stating the item does not require an Import Authorization; end-user statement stating no Import Authorization is required). English translations must be provided for foreign language documents.
NOTE : Digital (including scanned) images of Import Authorizations that have been signed and/or stamped are accepted and can be emailed.
Purchase Order/Confirm Order
A copy of a purchase order from the foreign party identified as the ultimate foreign end-user on the application, addressed to the applicant, signed by that foreign party, specifying the type of firearm, caliber, quantity, dollar value, make/model, end-use and end-user of the article must accompany each application. The purchase order must be a firm commitment and not speculative. U.S. company invoices/pro forma invoices are not acceptable. English translations must be provided for foreign language documents. The quantity listed on the license cannot be greater than the purchase order. Using a purchase order more than once is unacceptable. Purchase orders with dates older than one year will not be accepted; a recent purchase order must be submitted with the application. Letters of intent or blanket orders are not acceptable.
