Firearm Owners Must Pay New Fee
A new one-time fee is required for anyone who registers a firearm due to a new state law.
Effective Jan. 1, 2017, all firearms permit applicants (including prior firearms applicants, out-of-state firearms applicants and law enforcement officers with personal firearms) will be assessed a $42 one-time fee.
No fee will be charged for subsequent permits to acquire a firearm, but even those who previously paid a fingerprint fee prior to Jan. 1, 2017, will be assessed the $42 fee for the first registration after Jan. 1, 2017.
Payment must be made by money order or cashier’s check only, payable to Hawaiʻi Criminal Justice Data Center.
