              Driver's License with current address
              Permit fee

Here are the fees for the type of permits we issue:
              New permit:                     $100
              Renewal:                          $50
              Reissue (due to loss, etc.): $10

It will take up to six weeks to process your permit application. Upon completion, you will be notified to pick up your permit.


If you have a change of residence or a name change, or a lost or destroyed you must notify the Sheriff's Office within thirty days.


Although we strive to alert citizens of their upcoming expiration, you should not expect to be notified when your Conceal & Carry is due for renewal. Conceal and Carry Renewals may be done up to thirty days prior to your expiration but no sooner. If you fail to renew on or before expiration date you will be charged an additional $10.00 fee per month for each month it is expired for up to ten months.  After ten months, you will be required to start the process over again for a new Conceal & Carry permit.


Missouri accepts most other state's conceal and carry permits. If you are from out of state and need to transfer your permit to Barry County, please call our office to verify that your state's permit is transferable. If we can transfer the permit, you will need to bring in your current permit, your Certificate of Qualification, state issued identification (with current address), and your transfer fee.
