Download SAPS 523 – Firearm Remittance Advice Documentation
When submitting an application to the South African Police Service (SAPS) for a firearm licence or renewal of a firearm licence, the designated firearms officer (DFO) will issue you with proof of receipt of your application.
The remittance advice for firearm applications SAPS 523(a) form is issued by the DFO upon receipt of your documentation but before receipt of proof of payment. After you have paid the application fee and submitted your receipt to the DFO, you will receive the acknowledgement of receipt of firearm documentation SAPS 523 form.
You can download and pre-complete the SAPS 523 form and hand it to the DFO to be stamped.
