Concealed Carry

In 2006 the Kansas Legislature passed the Personal and Family Protection Act. Since July 2006, more than 138,000 Kansans have applied for concealed carry licenses. The first licenses were issued on January 3, 2007.

The Office of the Attorney General offers the following information to help Kansans and visitors better follow the Kansas concealed carry law.  If you have additional questions, call the Concealed Carry Licensing Unit at (785) 291-3765 or click here to send us an email.

Effective July 1, 2023, the application fee provided by law is $32.50 payable to the Sheriff of the applicant’s county of residence, and the fee to the Office of the Attorney General is reduced to $0.

The minimum age to apply for a concealed carry handgun license is 18 years of age.

NOTE: Due to high volumes of applications being received, processing times are currently 10-12 weeks for both new and renewal applications. Thank you for your patience as we work through our backlog.
