Congressional Press Accreditation Application Process
Congressional Press accreditation for magazines, newsletters, non-daily newspapers, and online publications are handled through the Periodical Press Gallery. The Executive Committee of Periodical Correspondents decides which publications qualify for press credentials.
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 House Periodical Press Gallery is currently in charge of administering credentials.
