Definition of "New Application" & "Renewal Application"
"New application" means an application for an Iowa professional permit to carry weapons filed when the applicant does not currently hold an Iowa permit to carry weapons or when the applicant does not file the application at least 30 days prior to the expiration of a currently held Iowa permit to carry weapons.

"Renewal application" means an application for an Iowa professional permit to carry weapons filed at least 30 days prior to the expiration of a currently held permit to carry weapons.

If a current permit holder fails to file a renewal application within the specified time frames and accompanied by the documentation of timely training or range qualification and the appropriate fee, then the application is considered to be a new permit application. At that point, training and fee requirements for a new permit application apply.
