Where to Send a Request

To expedite the processing of your FOIA request, we encourage you to take advantage of our web-based system known as FOIAonline.  It allows individuals to submit their requests directly to any participating agency, including the Marine Corps and the Navy.  You can do this as a ‘guest’ or you can create a free account, which enables you to track the status of your requests, search for requests submitted by others, access previously released records, and generate agency-specific FOIA processing reports.  Creating an account also greatly simplifies the FOIA appeal process, as users can submit an appeal just by clicking the “create appeal” tab.  It also allows near-real time online communication with our analysts (during normal duty hours).  There is no charge for using this service, although normal FOIA processing fees remain unchanged, if applicable.  You can access the website at:  https://foiaonline.gov.


If you have any questions, please send an email to Headquarters Marine Corps at hqmcfoia@usmc.mil or call (703) 614-4008.
