The Virginia Department of Corrections offers the opportunity for family or friends of offenders to meet remotely through a Video Visitation Program.

Video Visitation makes it easier for some visitors to meet with their incarcerated family or friends without having to invest the time and money in traveling long distances.

How to Use Video Visitation

First, an offender must be eligible for video visitation by meeting the following corresponding standard based upon their assignment security level.

If the offender is eligible, the following steps must then be followed:

  1. The offender has to initiate the visitation process established by the prison. The offender fills out an application packet and mails it to his family or friend.
  2. The family or friend has to mail the application with the fee to the appropriate Visitor Center on the list below.
  3. The Visitor Center sends the name of the visitor back to the facility to insure accurate information and to schedule the video visitation's date and time.
  4. The prison confirms the information.
  5. The Visitor Center contacts the family or friend and confirms date and time of the visit.
