Can I bring a firearm and ammunition on board?

 

Passengers wishing to transport a firearm and/or ammunition, either in person or in a vehicle, must declare them to the port at which they check-in prior to boarding the ship.

Passengers carrying firearms and ammunition must have the required permit and be prepared to produce it when requested. All firearms and ammunition must be kept in the vehicle and keys must be handed over to a member of crew for safekeeping during the voyage.

If you are travelling on foot the case containing the firearm and the ammunition must be handed over to a member of crew for safekeeping during the voyage. 

A maximum of 1000 cartridges of UN 0012 and UN 0014 of Class 1.4S per vehicle, which should be carried in the original manufacturers packaging, is permitted without documentation. Quantities in excess of this must be declared and carried according to the full provisions of the IMDG Code.

We reserve the right to refuse shipment.
