How To Get On The Approved Visit List
An inmate may visit with identified family members, friends, and clergy who have been selected by the inmate and pre-approved by ADC to visit.

Every newly committed inmate completes and submits a Visitation List, identifying up to 20 individuals they would like to have visit them. Before being allowed to visit however, an individual selected by an inmate must complete an Application to Visit an Inmate.

You can fill out this form online or print it out and mail it in to the visitation office. Do not mail it directly to the inmate.

You must also pay a one-time $25 fee for a background check. You can make this payment online or mail in a money order with a paper application. If this fee is not paid, the visitor application will not be processed and you can’t visit an inmate.
