Title 19. Public Safety
Agency 30. Department of State Police
Chapter 190. Regulations Relating to the Issuance of Nonresident Concealed Handgun Carry Permits

19VAC30-190-140. Appeal process.

If the applicant is denied a nonresident concealed handgun permit and does not believe that he has a previous conviction or other disqualification that renders him ineligible, he may contact the Firearms Transaction Center to discuss the ineligible determination and/or to provide additional information deemed pertinent to the final determination of eligibility.

Any person denied a permit and not satisfied with the explanation provided by the Firearms Transaction Center may appeal such denial to the Superintendent of State Police provided that any such action is initiated within 30 days of the denial by the State Police. Such appeal must be in writing, setting forth any grounds that the applicant wishes to be considered. The Superintendent of State Police shall consider each such appeal, and will notify the applicant in writing of his decision within five business days after the day on which the appeal is received.

Any person denied a permit for inaccurate or false information may not reapply for a period of 12 months following the date of final denial determination by the Superintendent.
