The Nevada Department of Public Safety Recently Updated The List of States in Which Nevada Will Recognize CCW Permits From. Absent from that letter was a reason why some states were removed. We reached out for information as to why some states where removed and got a response back.

The recently released letter lists states for which Nevada will honor those states CCW Permits. Removed from the list are the following states in which Nevada will no longer recognize their CCW Permits:

Florida
Ohio
Mississippi Enhanced Permits
South Carolina
South Dakota Enhanced Permits
Utah provisional permits (18-20)
Virginia

In response to our request for information, Tara Olson, one of Nevada's Point of Contact Program Officers, responded back to our request with the following statement:

"The reason that Florida, South Carolina, South Dakota, and Virginia no longer have reciprocity with Nevada is they do not have an electronic database which identifies each individual who holds a valid CCW permit, issued by that State, in which Nevada law enforcement may access directly at any time. Ohio and Mississippi were sent numerous correspondences and never replied back to us, so they do not have reciprocity with Nevada. You did list Utah and they do have reciprocity with the state of Nevada."

It should be noted that Nevada does still recognize Utah's CCW permits, they just don't recognize their provisional permits which are for Utah residents that are ages 18 to 20.

The States to which Nevada Recognizes their CCW Permits are:

Effective 7-1-21

Pursuant to SB 175 and AB 488 of the 2015 Legislative Session, the state of Nevada will recognize concealed weapons permits from the following states:

Alaska
Arizona
Arkansas
Idaho Enhanced Permit
Illinois
Kansas
Kentucky
Louisiana
Massachusetts
Michigan
Minnesota
Montana
New Mexico
North Dakota (Class 1 only)
Oklahoma
Tennessee
Texas
Utah
West Virginia
Wisconsin
Wyoming

For the circumstances in which a holder of a permit issued by another state may carry concealed in Nevada please see NRS 202.3689.
