It's $50 per adult & $20 per child (minor). I would take dollar bills and quarters. Sometimes the machines fill up on bills and you can only use change.

Most facilities, the photo ducats are $2 and you get them in the lobby.

Unless they've moved it again since my last visit, the machine is outside and it runs out fast. It's been about a year since I've been, but they were lining up in the parking lot near the shade cover for 8am appts. If yours is early that way, get there about 7:30 and walk up to the building to get your token before getting in line back in the lot. Maybe they're better at it now, but they used to let the machine run out on Saturday and not refill for Sunday. I will never understand that.

Enjoy your visit!

It's $50 for each adult. So if it's just you going in, you can only take $50.

You can bring any amount you like provided it doesn't exceed the $50 per adult and $20 per child limit.

I am on an extremely tight budget and never bring more than $20 total.

On that, I have no idea. Maybe they feel a minor eats less? Who knows.

My man has only non contact visits & I'm planning on going this coming weekend. Can anyone tell me the process? How long is our visit? Same line? The button thing? The removing shoes?

I'm not sure what the button thing is, but everyone must go through the metal detectors prior to visit. No matter if it's contact or non. Yes, you have to take your shoes off.

As far as I know, you'll have to press the ION scanner button like all visitors being processed.

So I have been trying for the past 3 days calling to schedule a visit for this weekend since he is on restriction & can only get noncontact visits. But I have not been able to get through. If I go without scheduling an appointment will they let me visit? I would hate to drive almost 3 just to be told no. Appreciate any help.

There are no walk-ups for non-contact. If you can't get through, I'd save the gas. Sorry this is happening.

Yep, and even then, if you show up and it's past the two years, they'll give you the form to fill out and return but it won't affect (or shouldn't affect) your ability to visit that day.

The other option is to go ahead and ask for the update form on your next visit and see if they'll accept it early given the distance you travel. Or, you could mail it back.

I've not had any of the facilities trip over it not being done on the exact two year mark.

Default Visiting with vpass

Hi everyone, I have a question I just got approved for visiting and I've tried to make a appt. On Vpass but it say no available appt for that many visiters and I'm only putting one visiter.
Also when making appt. The time that appear, are those available times? Sorry I'm new at this. I've tried all times and date, but same message.
