Permits & Insurance

Permits are required from the controlling government authority on the following lands: National Parks, Forests, Recreation Areas; Bureau of Land Management (BLM) controlled lands; state and federal highways; state-owned lands regardless of grazing or other leases; Arizona State Government Buildings & Facilities; Arizona State Parks; Indian Lands in Arizona. In some cases, multi-jurisdictional approvals are needed. Permits from both state and federal jurisdictions are often required for state highways through federal lands, which in particular instances also involve tribal governments and/or private lands. 

Minimum fee permits are required to shoot on Arizona State Trust Lands and in State Parks. Some cities including Phoenix, Scottsdale, Tucson, Page, Prescott, and Yuma require permits for filming, as do Maricopa and Pima Counties. All federal, state and community permits require producers to provide an original certificate of insurance, with a minimum liability amount of $1 million, naming the permitting agency and its employees as additionally insured and held harmless. All Indian Reservations and their respective tribal governments require permits for filming on Indian Lands. In some cases, individual city film offices will assist you in obtaining permits. Arizona cities and towns that do not have a designated "film office" often use their local chamber of commerce or conventions and visitors bureau.
