Firearms Permit to Carry & Fees


Application Process for Electronic Concealed Carry Permit

The NJ Firearms application process for concealed carry permits is now an automated web-based process. Applicant access has been placed online to streamline the process and to keep applicants informed of the progress of the application. This new system is designed to decrease your wait time for permit to carry.

The online application is applicant user driven, so please ensure that you have entered the accurate information, phone numbers for yourself and references also include the most up to date email addresses for yourself and references.  Incorrect information submitted to the online portal may require your application to be withdrawn.  Fees paid are NON-REFUNDABLE.




Be sure to read all instructions before beginning the process.

Step 2:  When you log on, you must enter the Bloomingdale Police Department’s ORI #: NJ0160100

Please ensure that the agency ORI number is correct on the form. If an incorrect ORI number is entered on the form, you will NOT receive a Permit to Carry. You will then have to re-apply using the correct ORI number and pay for the process again. A refund cannot be issued.


Step 3:  Complete the online application. You may complete the application using a smartphone, mobile device, laptop, or desk computer. When completing the application, you will need the email addresses of four (4) reputable references not related by blood or law.  Your references can complete the questionnaire using a smartphone, mobile device, laptop, or desktop computer. The new system will email to the listed references a series of questions that need to be answered accurately and truthfully for the application to be considered valid. Please advise your listed references to complete the questions as soon as possible to make sure your background investigation starts in a timely fashion.


Step 4:  Print out your application AND confirmation page that was emailed to you and bring to the police department with a CHECK or MONEY ORDER for payment reflected on your application.  Checks and Money Orders shall be made out to Bloomingdale Police Department, NO CASH WILL BE ACCEPTED.  Your application will not be processed until we have received payment and confirmation page.  A non-refundable payment is required to be made prior to the completion of the background as per NJAC 13:54-1.4.
