Q: How do we handle Middle Eastern women who wear either hijab or the more traditional burka or niqab that covers most if not all of the face? For religious purposes, the woman’s face cannot be shown to a man. Currently, we have a female employee go to a back room to view her face and match with the ID provided. More specifically, if this female employee is not trained in selling guns and not filling out the remainder of the form, do they need to document this on the 4473 somehow? What about states who allow Muslim women to have their driver?s license photo taken with the face covered? How do they ID her if the license shows a covered face?
