In accordance with 430 ILCS 66/40 (b), out of state residents may be eligible for an Illinois Concealed Carry License if your state
meets the definition of substantially similar as established by rule. See 20 Il. Admin. Code 1231.10. Currently, the states
identified below have been determined to have laws related to firearm ownership, possession, and carrying that are substantially
similar to the requirements to obtain a license under Illinois’ law; and, therefore, may apply for an Concealed Carry License.
This list will be updated as additional states are identified as substantially similar. Further Information concerning the
regulations for non-resident applications can be found at 20 Il. Admin. Code 1231.110.
