Rhode Island Concealed Carry Law
While our online training program may not allow you to apply for Rhode Island permit/license to carry, residents of Rhode Island can utilize our online training program to apply for a New Hampshire Nonresident Carry Permit/License to ADD to the number of states they can carry in than with Rhode Island’s permit alone.
While Rhode Island does issue carry permit/licenses to residents, nonresidents will have a more difficult time acquiring a carry permit/license. Rhode Island does NOT recognize the New Hampshire Nonresident Carry Permit/License as a legal way to concealed carry in their state.
However, by getting the State of New Hampshire’s Nonresident Carry Permit/License, you can INCREASE the number of states you CAN carry in.

Does This Course Qualify Me To Obtain A New Hampshire Nonresident Carry Permit/License?
Yes. You will NOT be applying for your permit in the state you reside. This is for you to obtain a New Hampshire Nonresident Carry Permit/License which is accepted in many states as a valid concealed carry permit, but NOT in Rhode Island. This is good for reciprocity to other states only for Rhode Island residents and nonresidents.
How Long is the New Hampshire Nonresident Carry Permit/License valid?
New Hampshire Nonresident Carry Permits/licenses are valid for 5 years. We suggest you apply at least 90 days before the expiration of your permit to be sure you have plenty of time to submit it to the New Hampshire State Police to be renewed to allow enough time for you to get your new permit before the old one expires.
