COMPLETING THE NON-RESIDENT APPLICATION PROCESS
You understand and agree that the Virginia Concealed Certificate of Completion is not a license or permit to carry a concealed weapon.

3. Two passport style photographs.

- be signed by the applicant
- be signed by the law enforcement individual taking the prints

- the agency stamp on the back of the print card is requested but not mandatory
