International Non UK Export Shipping - If outside UK please read
Update 30th June 2019 - The export rules for scopes of 10x or more magnification (high magnification civilian market scopes/dual use military) no longer apply to the majority of scopes. Only scopes with digital image processing or designed specifically for military use are export controlled.
So if you are reading this coming in from one of our product links then the rules no longer apply. Go ahead and order, no paperwork, no hassle
Exceptions that still require export permits: Digital processing scope such as the ATN NVs
The process for digital processing export controlled scopes is as follows:
|Sanctions - Russia
Until further notice no scopes covered by export control may be shipped to Russia.
This means only scopes of upto 9x maximum magnification may be shipped.
We will have to refuse, cancel or refund any orders received from Russia until these sanctions are lifted.
"Fast Track" Open Individual Export License (OIEL) - If you live in the following countries
- All EU countries
- Non EU OIEL coverage - Australia, Canada, Chile, Falklands, Faroe, Gibraltar, Greenland, Hong Kong, Iceland, India, Japan, Macedonia, Malaysia, Monaco, New Caledonia, New Zealand, Norway, South Africa, Switzerland, USA
Single Individual Export License (SIEL):
For digital scopes not covered by the OIEL process. The process takes a little longer but is still no big deal if you are willing to do a little bit of easy paperwork - basically sign and date a paper then wait 2-4 weeks - and you do need to pay in advance too.
Process for SIELs
After you purchase - We send a export form that you print, sign, date and send back, but then we must apply for an export permit, that takes 2-4 weeks to be approved (they are always approved) and then we ship. Here is an example of the form you need to do.
The permit we apply for is called a SIEL. Single Individual Export License.
