Firearms Owners Identification Card
In the State of Illinois, a FOID card is required to be legally in possession of or to purchase a firearm or ammunition. Application is made through the Illinois State Police.
Web LInk is here:
The Illinois State Police Website also has important information on how to purchase, sell and legally transport firearms.

There have been major delays in getting FOID cards processed by the Illinois State Police. Most delays are caused by applicant errors on the application. Be sure you double check before sending your application in.
The easiest route for getting a FOID Card is to visit your county Farm Bureau Office.  They'll help you with the paperwork and take a suitable picture.
