The White House
Due to increased security procedures enacted since September 11th, it is very difficult to get tickets to tour the White House and slots are extremely limited. Tour requests should be made up to six months in advance and requests are considered on a first come first serve basis. However, the White House does not inform Congressional offices about the status of tour requests until two or three weeks before the requested tour date.
Please note, all tours are subject to cancellation due to occasional security shutdowns.
