Effective immediately, the St. Louis County Sheriff’s Office will resume accepting new/renewal applications and change of address/lost or destroyed card requests for Minnesota Permits-to-Carry.
Due to the fact that all St Louis County facilities are closed to the public, and to ensure that applicants stay compliant with Governor Walz’s Executive Order 20-33 (Stay at Home)
, we will only be accepting applications submitted via the United States Postal Service.
Send your completed application packet to your nearest St. Louis County courthouse's sheriff's office. These locations are in Duluth at 100 N 5th Ave W #103, Duluth, MN 55802, in Hibbing at 1810 12th Ave E, Hibbing, MN 55746, and in Virginia at 300 S 5th Ave, Virginia, MN 55792.
An incomplete application will not be processed and will be returned to the applicant.
In order for us to begin processing your application, you must include the following with your completed application form:
1) a completed application form (provided here
), signed and dated by the applicant; (a renewal application cannot be submitted earlier than 90 days prior to the expiration date on the permit)
(2) an accurate photocopy of your training certificate* that is submitted as your evidence of training in the safe use of a pistol; and
(3) an accurate photocopy of your current driver's license (with current home address), state identification card, or the photo page of your passport.
(4) a $70.00 check or money order for new or renewal applications. $10.00 for change of address/loss or destruction. All fees must be made payable to "ST. LOUIS COUNTY SHERIFF".
In addition to the other application materials, an applicant who is otherwise ineligible for a permit due to a criminal conviction but who has obtained a pardon or expungement setting aside the conviction, sealing the conviction, or otherwise restoring applicable rights, must submit a copy of the relevant order.
*Permit to Carry Training Certificate of Attendance must be dated within one year of us accepting your application.
