To be allowed possession of a weapon, you must apply for a weapon licence and have your application granted.
To be allowed to trade in firearms, you must have a permit from the Swedish Police Authority.
A permit may be given to either a natural person or a legal person. In most cases, it may be necessary to apply for several different permits to trade in firearms.
If you plan to bring your weapon into Sweden temporarily, or are travelling through, certain rules apply. Keep in mind that the weapon you plan to bring into Sweden must be approved for hunting in Sweden.
If you want to import firearms permanently into Sweden for private use, such as for hunting or target-shooting purposes, you must apply for a permit (license) to possess firearms in Sweden.
In order to repair and overhaul weapons, you need a permit from the Police.
