Temporary Import of Firearms: Non-Resident Aliens
A “Nonresident Alien” is a person who is not a citizen of the United States and whose permanent place of abode is not in the United States.
Hunters coming from a country other than the United States of America are required to purchase a Nonresident Alien hunting license. This can be done easily once you have booked your trip. You can go on line to http://www.admin.adfg.state.ak.us/license/ where you can buy the hunting license and print it out on your printer at home. Please fax or e-mail us a copy for the license once you have obtained in.
Once you have your hunting license then you need to complete the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (BATF) form 6NIA (5330.3d Temporary Import of Firearms Permit) Go to their website and print out this form: www.atf.gov/forms/pdfs/f53303d.pdf once this is completed FAX it to BATF along with your hunting license. Note that your hunting license must have your signature. FAX to this number: +1 (304) 616-4554 or +1 (304) 616-4555. Also FAX or e-mail me a copy of the form. This form we cannot complete for you; it is something that only you can do.
These requirements are simple to fulfill but must be completed as soon as possible. I am available to help you with this process at any time. If you wish you might send me the payment for the hunting license along with your deposit and I will buy it for you. If you wish me to buy your hunting license I will e-mail you a copy as soon as I receive it. Once these items are completed the rest is pretty simple.If you have any questions or problems with these items please let me know.
