An update as to how long the Non-Resident CT permit takes to process. I submitted my paperwork on 21 November 2017, DEPS received it on 26 November 2017, and I received my permit on 20 February 2018. The blue FBI fingerprint card is no longer required, only the green CT fingerprint card. Also, as of 1 December 2017, I was told by DEPS that the fee increased from $70 to $300 for a five year permit.
