Although comparatively, few permits are necessary for filming in New Mexico, permits are required for production on federal, state-owned and tribal properties and lands. Permits are also often required for production on city properties, especially historical sites and public streets, as well as for special use of county roads and state highways.
*Companies considering shooting on federal property must connect with the proper federal contact .
