Application Process

The process to obtain a concealed weapon permit has changed over the past few years. Here is a quick guide to get your application started.

Step 1: Complete the online application at https://firearms.ariesportal.com/. At the end of the application, you will receive directions on how to schedule fingerprinting (step 2) and payment of the state fee. (After completing this step you will have only 90 days to complete Steps 2 and 3. )

Step 2: Schedule electronic fingerprinting through Identgo, either by calling (877) 472-6917 or visiting www.in.ibtfingerprint.com.

Step 3: Bring your application number, drivers license and fingerprint receipt to your local law enforcement agency for approval. There is no longer a fee for a four-year or  lifetime permit. 

Step 4: Your application will be reviewed by the Chief of Police and then electronically transferred to the Indiana State Police for final approval. If your application is approved, your permit will be sent to you via U.S. Mail. If your application is rejected, you will be notified via U.S. Mail and will receive instructions on how to file an appeal.
