Recognition of Concealed Handgun Permits Permits Issued By Other States Which Are Recognized By Nebraska
On August 30, 2009, Nebraska began recognizing CHP permits issued by those states which the Nebraska Attorney General has determined have standards equal to or greater than Nebraska. This recognition extends ONLY to persons who are NOT residents of
Nebraska. This change in the law allows non-resident permit holders from the approved states to carry handguns concealed in Nebraska the same as if they held a Nebraska permit. See our regulations on this web site for restrictions on places that a concealed weapon can be carried.
The following states have standards equal to or greater than the standards contained in Nebraska’s statute:
Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Hawaii, Idaho, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, North Carolina, North Dakota (class one permit), Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Tennessee, Utah, Virginia, West Virginia, Wyoming and the District of Columbia
