Vermont is a very permissive state for firearms. Vermont operates on an “Unrestricted” status and doesn’t issue permits to carry a firearm. Any individual older than 16 and can legally posses a firearm is allowed to conceal or open carry.

Vermont doesn’t distinguish between a resident or non-resident in terms of carry laws.
