Can a non-resident tourist buy a gun for use in their countries? I need to buy one for use in Tanzania.
If you can legally own it in the origin country and the destination country, you might be able to arrange the import. It will require special handling if you bring it by air and lots of paperwork in advance.
- Hunters may be allowed to bring their own guns if they are allowed to hunt in the destination country. (That's not exactly your situation, right?)
- Sports shooters may be allowed to bring their guns to international competitions. That's quite routine in much of Europe, for example. (Again not quite your situation?)
- Importing a gun will be more complicated. If you need to ask here, forget it.
