E-Apply to be awarded dedicated status

Once you have successfully completed your online evaluation and your score/s has been approved for the practical of dedicated status, you may now apply to be awarded the relevant Dedicated Status (as is required by Law).

Do the following:

Step 1: Click on Login (top right of Natshoot Website frame)

Step 2:  Enter your cell phone number or email address as the user id and your id number as password (or your own if you had changed the default password)

Step 3: Click on the "Dedicated status Course" heading on the left hand side

Step 4:  Click on “ + Apply dedicated Status” under the "action needed" block (next to your evaluation mark)

Step 5:  Read text from top of screen all the way to the bottom of the page

Step 6:  Tick all blocks where you have to answer a specific statement or question (do not do this mechanically as quickly as you possibly can, without first reading the contents of each statement, as you are making statements which are legally binding on your person and on the continued legal ownership of your firearms)

Step 7:  Click on the Submit button - this will enter your application to the office


Your status will be updated within 0-48 hours once you’ve submitted your application for the dedicated status and you will be notified by Email, of the issue of your Dedicated Status Certificates and that these documents as well as your updated electronic membership card can be downloaded from your Certificates page on your personal Natshoot web page.

Always download all your updated personal NHSA documentation from your Certificates page on your personal Natshoot web page, and attach those to all and any application submitted to SAPS re firearm licences.
