Handgun Purchase Permit

Online Permits

The Halifax County Sheriff’s Office offers this online service as a convenience to the community. Visit the Handgun Purchase Permit page to get started.


In addition to the per permit fee of $5, the system will charge a per transaction fee for the convenience of applying and paying for your permits online, saving multiple trips to the Sheriff’s Office. The convenience fee is not collected by the Sheriff. This fee is paid to the company that provides this order, payment, and processing system to the public. 

You do have the option of applying and paying via cash in person at the Sheriff’s office. By doing so, you will not be charged the convenience fee. The total fee is non-refundable.
