IMPORTANT CHANGE TO FIREARMS IDENTIFICATION CARDS (FID Cards): As of April 1, 2021, per the NJ State Police:
Applications submitted from April 1, 2021 onwards will receive an electronic “E-FID” Card upon application approval. Applicants will no longer receive a printed Firearms Identification Card. Once a FARS application is approved, the applicant will receive a confirmation email from FARS with a link to access their E-FID. The applicant will have the ability to print, save and/or screenshot their E-FID Card. Previously issued printed FID Cards will not expire and will still be considered valid.
