Notice of Carrying Guns and Ammunition

Under the domestic law, athletes must keep the following guidances in check.

  • It is completely prohibited to take guns and ammunition in or out of the shooting range.
  • After finishing your training or competition, bring all the guns and ammunition back to the armory.
Notification
  • SSF Member Federations must declare all firearms brought into Korea for the ISSF World Championship in advance.
  • All federations must complete the Firearm and Ammunition Form (Annex 8) clearly and return it with scanned copies of valid passports for each athlete to the Organizing Committee by email not later than 15 JUL 2018.
  • Please make sure that the firearm document should be sent to the Organizing Committee not later than Thirty (30) days before the arrival in case of the arrival earlier than the official arrival day (31 AUG 2018).
  • Please type in PC ONLY (no handwriting) on the Excel Form (do not use a PDF format) when completing the Firearms Form and send it back by email (No Fax transmission will be accepted)!
  • The charge for a firearms permit – for all firearms – is EUR 30.00 per federation. This has to be wired to the Organizing Committee account in advance or paid to the Organizing Committee at the Changwon International Shooting Range by 14:00 on 1 SEP 2018.
  • The Official Airports for customs clearance of firearms in South Korea are two (2) international airports: Busan-Gimhae (PUS) and Seoul-Incheon (ICN).
  • The Korean government requests that the customs clearance for all luggage and firearms must be made at the first arrival international airport of Korean National Territory on arrival, and at the last airport on departure. International airlines fly from several Asian nations directly to PUS, whereas most airline connections from other continents are through ICN.
  • Delegations travelling through ICN may transfer to an international flight to PUS (see b) below), or move to the Seoul-Gimpo Domestic Airport (GMP) by land to take a domestic flight to PUS. It takes about 45 min from ICN to GMP by bus. Please consider connection time (min. four hours) if you go from ICN to GMP since the custom clearance for all luggage and firearms must be made at ICN.
  • The Organizing Committee staff will assist firearms clearance in the customs channel at PUS or ICN. All athletes must go directly to the customs after baggage claim at arrival to verify that the serial numbers of their own firearms are identical with the ones declared in advance. Please note that any firearm that was not declared in advance on the Firearm and Ammunition Form (Annex 8) or was not correctly declared, cannot be released and will be kept in the custody of customs on arrival. If it is necessary to make or correct a firearm declaration upon arrival, authorization to release the firearm will take at least 3 days.
  • When the delegation transfers to a flight for PUS at ICN, the custom clearance of all firearms will be made at PUS. However, those who arrive at ICN with firearms and then go through GMP to reach PUS, must complete their firearms clearance at ICN and then hand over all firearms including air guns and air pellets to the Organizing Committee staff at ICN. Please do NOT travel to GMP directly with any firearms and ammunition.
  • The Organizing Committee staff will transport all firearms directly from PUS or ICN to the armory at the Changwon International Shooting Range. The same procedure will be made at departure that all firearms will be taken over at the meeting point of PUS or ICN.

Special Notes
Any athletes who transfer in Shanghai, CHN and Abu Dhabi, UAE must obtain separate gun permit from those countries. Guns can be impounded there unless delegates obtain gun permit.

Special Notes for Shotgun

Any barrel (extra barrel and original), stock, trigger, choke, optic, magazine and gun accessories with its own serial number must be declared separately in the Firearm and Ammunition Form (Annex 8) providing that its serial number is different from the main serial number of the gun.

Team Leaders are kindly requested to contact the Organizing Committee at the Changwon International Shooting Range three (3) days before the departure to get the necessary departure information.
