In Israel, gun licenses need to be renewed every three years.


A few months before a gun license expires, gun owners will receive a message from MOPS (the Ministry of Public Security) with a reminder to renew their license.

The renewal process can be completed online here. The payment for the license can be made online as well.


Once the payment is paid is made you’ll need to print out the payment receipt along with the license renewal forms to bring with you to the shooting range.


You will also need to provide the below documents:


  • A letter from your doctor

  • Your current gun license

The range will check that the details of the license match the weapon and your declaration that you meet the justification requirements for holding a weapon.


Gun owners also need to take refresher course every year which involves shooting 50 rounds. When renewing a gun license you will need to take a renewal training session that involves firearms training as well as going over the different laws and requirements of a gun holder in Israel.


At the end of the training session the instructor will certify that you have passed the theoretical and practical components.
