Licence of FirearmsLicensing RequirementThe Royal Eswatini Police ServiceEach gun owner needs a licence to own a firearm. The licence is applied for when registering the firearm. The materials needed include a certificate of registration of the firearm, a current firearm licence (if there is one), the firearm itself and a certificate of inspection, which is filled in while applying for the licence. If the firearm you are registering is not the first, then you bring your current licence for firearms as part of documents needed when getting a licence for a new firearm.
