Temporary Importation of Firearms

Firearms (practical and non-practical) and blank ammunition require a Police permit to be imported temporarily for film use. An application with the Police must be filed well in advance of the planned importation date. This may be done either directly by contacting the Police Weapons Office weapons.police@gov.mt or on 2294 2110, in which case the goods would be stored by the Police, or through licensed local Armourers who would be responsible for their storage for the duration of the filming. The Malta Film Commission can offer a list of Armourers to Production Companies seeking to use licensed locals.
