Civilians have already been in space. Valentina Tereshkova was the first civilian in space, aboard a Vostok 6 rocket. Joseph Walker was the second, having flown an X-15 into space twice.
However, I am assuming you meant on a somewhat regular basis. In April, 2001, a civilian paid $20 million to board the International Space Station. There have been several since.
If you are wondering when there will be a company that offers space flights to civilians, the answer is now. Virgin Galactic (http://www.virgingalactic.com/) is currently booking flights for only $200,000.
