Congressional Press Accreditation Application Process

Congressional Press accreditation for magazines, newsletters, non-daily newspapers, and on-line publications are handled through the Periodical Press Gallery. All reporters interested in obtaining a Congressional press pass should first read and review the rules and regulations of the Periodical Press Gallery. If you presume you and your publication qualify for credentials, please review the relevant instructions for your situation (RenewingNew or Foreign applicant) in order to complete the application process.

The Periodical Press Gallery is unique in that the administrative duty of credentialing our correspondents rotates between the House and Senate offices. We rotate this responsibility every four years. The Senate Periodical Press Gallery is currently in charge of administering credentials. 

To receive an application, call the Senate Periodical Press Gallery at 202-224-0265, or pick up an application in S-320 in the U.S. Capitol.
