Airsoft Pistol
Am I permitted to travel with my airsoft pistol?

Yes. You can travel with your airsoft pistol to Hong Kong. Please be reminded that it is a criminal offence under the laws of Hong Kong to import, export or possess any air rifle or air gun discharged with a muzzle energy greater than 2 joules.


Are there any special procedures to observe after I arrive at Hong Kong Airport?

As all incoming baggage is x-rayed on arrival in Hong Kong, there’s a possibility security may think that your airsoft pistol is a real firearm, so it might be flagged for inspection. If so, the bag containing your airsoft pistol will not appear on the baggage carousel designated for your flight.

If this occurs, retrieve your other baggage from the designated carousel first, then proceed to the Customs duty office located at baggage carousel #9, where your other bag will be waiting. After Customs verify you only have an airsoft pistol, you will be free to leave.


If it is not convenient for me to travel with my airsoft pistol, what should I do?

Please coordinate with your Region Director or delegate to collect all competitors’ airsoft pistol and deliver them to our admin office. We can arrange for courier services to return your airsoft pistol to your Regional admin office after the competition. Please send an email to aaws@hkpsa.org for enquiries regarding arrangements and service charges. Please be reminded that it is a criminal offence under the laws of Hong Kong to import, export or possess any air rifle or air gun discharged with a muzzle energy greater than 2 joules.


Am I permitted to keep my airsoft pistol with me while I am in your country? If not, what are the storage arrangements?

Yes, you are permitted to keep your airsoft pistol with you while you are in Hong Kong as long as the firearm is stored in a gun case, unloaded.
