Default First time VPASS...

Hello everyone. My guy was told that he is going to be moved to PV and I was just wondering how the VPASS process has worked out for everyone so far. I have visited at Old Folsom and San Quentin and at both places you just showed up, no appointment necessary. I will be traveling from New Mexico to visit and need to book a flight, room, rental car etc. Can you schedule appointments further in advance or does it HAVE to be for the next week? Also, which city should I fly into? I haven't seen him in a year and a 1/2 and I want to be as prepared as possible so I can spend as much time with him as possible. Also, I have read that they are really strict about PDA here. Are you allowed to hold hands while walking to vending machines and stuff like that?? Thanks for all your help!!

Welcome
As far as scheduling an apt on Vpass you can schedule it on a monday the same week you are going to visit. Yes, you can hold hands while walking to the vending machines, but once you get to the vending machines there is a yellow line he is not suppose to cross. He can't touch the $ or the vending machines and once the lady who fills the vending machines comes in the room all the inmates and visitors are asked to stay seated until she is out of the room. You are allowed to hold hands, but thats about it PV is strict with PDA. Enjoy your visit.

The earliest you can book your appointment is 8:30. Appointments are scheduled on Mondays @ 7am to visit that weekend only.

I make my appts on my IPhone5. I got the VPASS app, I make my appointments from work. I have to be at work at 7am....I was getting to work 30min late every other week, until I got the app. Maybe you can get the app for your phone.

Thumbs up VPASS Icon

Ladies, I have an Iphone5, and my friend has the Droid. What we did was we went into Safari typed in Google and on the search engine typed VPASS, we than clicked on "the forward" and it gives you the option to "Add to Home Screen"... which we did. The VPASS icon is on my home screen


I am able to make my appointments to visit my Baby on my cell phone...I love the convenience w/out the hassle when I can't be at home on my laptop or pc .

Passionfruit, I do NOT have an Ipad either lol, I have an Iphone5, one day I will get it . I forward the VPASS, to my phones home screen...my mistake it is NOT an APP, chica...I forwarded the icon..

In Safari you type Google and on the search engine type VPASS, I clicked on "the forward" and it gives you the option to "Add to Home Screen" which I did. The VPASS icon is on my home screen now


sorry for any mixup...

it took like a month or month 1/2 bcz he changed building && I guess his counselor didnt note it, until I called him bcz I was highly concern about my husband thats when he got off orientation status. . .

When my Baby arrived at PV, he was on orientation for 13 days, I was able to visit that weekend. I called his counselor to verify his status. Plus my Baby called me that day. I prepared myself and made an appt on VPASS, that week just to be safe. Hopefully you wont have to wait a month.
