PHOENIX — In light of the COVID-19 situation, the Arizona Game and Fish Department (AZGFD) has temporarily modified in-person customer service in an effort to protect the health and safety of customers and employees while continuing to provide services and support.
Effective April 1, 2020, front lobbies at AZGFD offices will be closed to in-person transactions except those made by appointment. Appointments can be made by calling (602) 942-3000 (select item 4 if you wish to be connected to one of our regional offices in Pinetop, Flagstaff, Kingman, Yuma, Tucson or Mesa rather than the Phoenix headquarters office).
