Default How long does it take to be approved for visitation?

Reading through these threads has me thinking...
I just sent in a visitation form last week to USP Beaumont in TX and my man is in the process of being transferred closer to home to W. Va. Just how long does it take for the background check and whatever else? I'm thinking by the time they get through doing all of that he'll be in transit or already transferred by then, in which we'll have to go through the process all over again.
They make me sick!

Here it takes 3-6 weeks depending on the facility level. I think it depends on the facility as far as time. It seems I've heard some take months. I know that in Idaho and some other states if your approved then that moves with him no matter where he goes as long as the facility is the same level.

Are you sure you will have to re-apply

Over Here It Takes A Couple Of Weeks. Not That Long-try And Send In Your Info Asap. Cause We All Know The Sooner The Better. TRY LOOKING ON THE WEBSITE IF THEY HAVE ONE-IT MIGHT TELL U, IF NOT TRY CALLING IF IT ISNT TOO FAR-GOOD LUCK!

Dang, I dunno if I'd have to reapply or not but that's what I thought. I'll call the facility tomorrow. Thanks!

Default how long to get approved for a visit?

Up state NY where my man is i didn't have to fill out any forms or get approved for a visit. I'm not sure if he had to put me on a visitors list but as long as i had his Din # and my I.D. i went, they process me and we had our visit

In Ohio, wives and adult children (immediate family) do not need to fill out forms. If you are just a friend and not his wife, you'll have to go thru the process of getting approved before you can visit, send money or other things. If he gets transferred to another prison, I'd think his paper work would go with him - especially his medical record and list of approved visitors and other such important things.... However, that makes too much sense so you may need to submit new info to the new place!

He called and informed me that he'd received a copy of the approved visitor's form and will send a copy to me via mail. Now which way to Texas?:-) I'm siced!
