CONCEALED HANDGUN PERMIT

VIRGINIA CODE § 18.2-308

APPLICATION: Residents of York County and the City of Poquoson over the age of 21 may apply for a  concealed handgun permit by completing an application obtained online or from the York County - Poquoson Circuit Court Clerk's Office.  The completed application must be signed under oath in the presence of a notary public, or the clerk or deputy clerk of the Circuit Court.  Non-resident concealed handgun permit applications are filed with the Virginia State Police.

FEE: The non-refundable application fee for a new permit or to renew an existing permit is $30.00.  Checks payable to the York County - Poquoson Circuit Court and MasterCard and VISA are accepted.  A convenience fee of 4% or $2.00, whichever is greater, will be charged on all credit card transactions.

PROOF OF COMPETENCY: Proof of competency to carry a handgun is required.

CRIMINAL HISTORY: York County and the City of Poquoson have local ordinances requiring a criminal record search by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.  Fingerprints are no longer required. 

ISSUANCE: The concealed handgun permit is issued within 45 days of the date the complete application is submitted to the Clerk.  If after the permit is issued and a criminal record search reveals that the applicant is disqualified, the permit is subject to revocation.

LOST PERMITS: There is a $5.00 fee to replace a lost or worn permit.

RENEWAL: Applications for permit renewal should be submitted at least 45 days prior to expiration of the current permit.

CHANGE OF ADDRESS:  There is a $10.00 fee for re-issuance of a permit for a change of address.
