Note: beginning October 1, 2015, the Pre-Authorized Debit (PAD) payment system and checks will no longer be accepted for park entrance fees at Grand Canyon National Park for Commercial Use Authorization (CUA) holders.

In an effort to streamline the process for managing entrance fees, the park is phasing out the PAD payment system and the acceptance of checks. If you are currently using the Commercial Tour Passenger Certification Form (half sheet) for entry into the park, you will no longer be required to submit this form.


Cash, credit card and traveler’s check will be the only approved forms of payment for entrance fees starting October 1, 2015. Card-Not-Present transactions are not permitted, including payment over the phone. Any company arriving at the entrance station without one of the approved forms of payment for entry fees will be denied access to the park.
