Requesting a Tour
Touring the White House requires some advance planning. Public tour requests must be made through your member of Congress (find your member of Congress and contact information here) and submitted up to six months in advance and no less than 21 days prior to your visit. If you wish to schedule a tour and are not a U.S. citizen, please contact your home country’s embassy in Washington, DC.
You are encouraged to submit your tour request as early as possible as tours fill up quickly and a limited number of spaces are available. Tours are filled on a first-come, first-served basis. All White House tours are free. Please note tours are subject to last minute cancellations based on the official White House schedule.
For complete details on White House tours, visit the White House tours and events page or call the White House Visitors Office 24-hour information line at (202) 456-7041. The White House is located at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW.
