LTOPF, gun registration is now online! 9 easy steps to do it

UPDATE as of July 17, 2017

Philippine National Police Chief Ronaldo "Bato" Dela Rosa announced during the 25th Defense and Sporting Arms Show (DSAS) held July 13-17 at the SM Megamall in Mandaluyong City, that a "provisional" License to Own and Possess Firearms (LTOPF) will now be available for all gun holders who need to renew their firearms.

The provisional LTOPF is exclusive only to gun holders with existing firearms and will no longer require a drug/neuro test. It will be valid for six months.

The LTOPF for first-time gun purchases, however, still require the drug/neuro tests.

Gun owning just got easier.

The Philippine National Police (PNP) recently launched the online system for all LTOPF and gun registration applications.

Called the PNP License to Own and Possess Firearms (LTOPF) and Firearms Registration System, the program aims to eliminate the long hours of waiting in applying for a license.

Here's how it works, according to the PNP's Information Technology Management Service (ITMS).

1. Prepare all gun license requirements. You can view the list of requirements HERE. Take note that all PNP neuro and psychiatric exam results and drug test results will be automatically forwarded to the PNP-Firearms and Explosives Office (FEO).

2. Sign up using your valid email address at

3. Type in your existing National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) ID number, passport number, postal ID number or SSS number. Your data (name, age, address, etc.) will be automatically filled in. For renewal, just type your old LTOPF control number.

4. Scan and upload your government-issued clearances and other requirements. Photos from your smartphones may be used in lieu of scanning.

5. Wait for the approval of the Chief, FEO via text message or email.

6. Pay your fees. Once approved, you can now pay the corresponding fees at any Landbank branches near you or at their online e-banking portal.

7. Upload your bank receipt and wait for SMS/text validation.

8. Choose your preferred scheduled date at any of the PNP satellite offices (e.g. Camp Crame, Marikina, Cebu, Davao and police regional offices, particularly at the regional civil security units)

9. Claim your LTOPF license, gun registration/renewal at your chosen location.

IMPORTANT: Applicants or their representatives are advised to strictly follow their preferred scheduled dates. Otherwise, their application will be processed just like any walk-in applicants.

(PS: To be honest, our team haven't tried this online registration system YET. We'd appreciate it much if you could share your experiences with us. Fill in your insights at the comments section down below.)
