White House Tours:
Request for White House tours should be submitted 3 to 4 months before the requested date. You may submit multiple dates, however we will only submit up to three days based on the availability of the tours. All tours are scheduled on a first-come, first served basis at the discretion of the White House Visitor Office. You may request a tour for up to 100 guests to tour the White House. All guests who plan to visit the White House must provide the following information to U.S. Secret Service: Full Name, Date of Birth, Social Security Number (U.S. citizens 18 and older only), country of birth, gender, and city and state of residence. Guests are responsible for submitting this information online via the secure RSVP form generated by the White House. All security information must be submitted before the RSVP deadline (you will receive RSVP by email and you will have 7 days to complete the RSVP). If you request a tour for 5 people and only 4 guests submit the security information by the deadline, the tour will auto-adjust to reservations for 4 people, and we will not be able to make any changes.
Note: Due to the nature of the White House schedule, tours cannot be scheduled more than two weeks (14 days) in advance of the requested date and are subject to cancellation at any time. You will receive notification approximately two weeks in advance of the requested date!
