Tours and Tickets
All tickets are provided to constituents on a first-come, first-served basis. Due to the large number of visitors, it is recommended to request your tours with our office at least 3-4 months in advance. We ask you to please be patient, as there are many tour requests, particularly during the Summer. For more information on sightseeing and attractions, please visit the Washington, DC Tourism Information page.

White House tour requests should be submitted at least 4 months in advance and no more than 6 months in advance of the requested tour date. You will then be prompted to submit information such as: name, birth date, place of birth, and Social Security number through a secured link sent by the White House. Please be prepared to provide this information for all members of your tour party. The White House will then typically confirm/deny tours about 2 weeks before your scheduled visit.
Please note that a tour request acceptance or denial is solely at the discretion of the White House Visitor’s Center and our office cannot make any guarantee of tours to the White House. Our office can neither control the day nor time of your White House tour. The White House does not conduct tours on Sundays or Mondays and may cancel scheduled tours at any time due to official business.
