News Date : 7th June, 2019
United States to Canada Export Schedule:
Orders placed from our Arizona store (www.irunguns.com) and 3rd party imports, cut off on the 15th of each month (at the end of business day 5:00pm MST) so that we can file permits with the US State Department and Department of Commerce to bring all Defense Articles into Canada.
Permit releases from the US State Department are no longer taking 30 days or less to be released.
We have been notified that due to the US State Department severe short-staffing, permits are now taking up to 45 days to be adjudicated.
So now, barring any unforeseen circumstances, orders generally arrive to our Canadian warehouse approximately 1 week after our permits have been released from the State Department and the Department of Commerce.
You can also check the status of your order by logging into your account on our Canadian site at www.irunguns.ca and clicking on "Account" in the top right-hand corner of the page.
Please note: As of June 26, 2018 we had been notified by the US State Department that all firearms having "China" as the original Country of Origin have now been sanctioned.
Due to the new US sanctions with China, we will no longer be importing Defense Articles with China as the country of origin. We have also been made aware that firearms with Russian origin are heavily screened and can cause further delays in the export process. Please keep this in mind when purchasing products in the United States.
Please keep in mind, optics and shotguns may take longer to export due to being governed by the Department of Commerce and permits could possibly take longer than the usual 30 days.
All NFA items usually take 90 days for ATF clearance to leave the US Commerce.
Once your order has been packaged and processed for export, you will receive an email link to log into your account on our Canadian website and pay the balance in Canadian funds, which consists of 5% GST and Canadian shipping from our Canadian warehouse to your shipping address you provided in your order.
Standard shipping is through Canada Post Expedited. ( Firearms cannot be shipped using Xpresspost or Priority, so please choose Expedited )
We are unable to combine orders or add to orders after they are placed so please make sure you order everything at one time. Shipping is also cheaper that way.
Please be advised we only export from the United States to Canada and vice versa.
Should you have any questions, please call our office at (780) 449-7220.
