Media credentialing for the September 2015 Apostolic Visit of Pope Francis to the United States was closed as of July 31. The U.S. Secret Service requested the deadline to complete background searches on the nearly 8,000 media who applied. Although we have no plans to reopen credentialing, you may email your name, email, phone and outlet to firstname.lastname@example.org. Your name will be put on a list of people we will contact if we are able to provide access to the Filing Centers for late requests.
