As of January 1, the Illinois State Police will automatically renew a person’s Firearm Owner’s Identification Card for those who have submitted a full set of fingerprints to ISP specifically for their FOID card or Concealed Carry License.

The individual’s FOID card will remain active for a period of 10 years from the date of the renewal approval so long as the card holder is not subject to revocation or suspension under the Firearm Owners Identification Card Act.

The Illinois State Police says as FOID cards are replaced, new cards will not include the issuance or expiration dates because of FOID Act updates that took effect January 1, 2022.

FOID card duration, renewal, and expiration information can be found in the FOID Card Act rules, Section 1230.30.
