The amount of time depends upon the amount of workload arriving at the bureau daily and whether the applications are submitted complete and error free. Applications are processed in the same order that they arrive. Applications are processed and issued daily. The registration system is backed up and published on our website every night. Errors on the application require correspondence and delay the process. Applicants with discipline histories or who maybe undergoing current discipline may take longer to process. Most applications are processed and issued within the same week that they arrive.
