I just got off the phone with sergeant Ramirez of the Puerto Rico Police Headquarters. Their number is (787) 793-1234, press 9 for English, then press 2 for the directory by department, and finally press 4 for Gun Permits.
Here is the deal: According to the guns regulation (https://policia.pr.gov/wp-content/uploads/2020/04/Reglamento_Armas.pdf - in Spanish only), Article 2.18, on page 38, loosely translated here:
“Individuals with firearms licenses from other jurisdictions, to have the same rights and privileges enjoyed by person with a Puerto Rico firearms license, must meet the 168-2019 law requirements. The Commissioner of the Puerto Rico Police Bureau (PRPB) could establish memorandums of understanding (MOU) with States and/or territories of the Unites States which have requirements similar to those established in the 168-2019 law.
Once the Commissioner of the PRPB establishes those MOUs, the persons that meet the established requirements and intend to introduce one or more firearms or ammunition to Puerto Rico, must notify the Division of Firearms Registry and Licensing. Such notification would be done by submitting Form PPR-1062 entitled “Notification of Intention to Introduce Firearms and/or Munitions”, five (5) working days prior to introducing the firearms and/or munitions into Puerto Rico. When available, this notification can be done online, through this link: www.policia.pr.gov. In that case, the firearms will be registered in the REAL Plus system.”
The sergeant said that NO MOU HAVE BEEN SIGNED YET WITH ANY STATE. Only non-resident individuals with a LEOSA license are allowed to carry in Puerto Rico at this time. He does not expect to have any MOUs finalized and approved until next year… MAYBE by January, and that is optimistic. The pandemic has delayed many of their processes, including this effort.
So… we must wait…
