When I visited back in June the visiting Sgt. Said she would allow tank tops to be worn to vists as long as the tank top wasn't cropped and aslong as underwear wasn't visible. If she could see your bra she would ask you to change. Hope that helps.

Default Appointments

Hey ladies I have a question, I have an appointment to see my husband, after his sister told me she wants to go. I've only taken my kids. She can come with me on my appointment correct? Or does she need her own?

Yes, if she is approved to visit him, she can definitely go with you. It is up to 5 people who can visit at contact visits.

Default Visiting approval taking forever!

Hello, KVSP received my application to visit August 16th. It is now September 19th and still no word. I know I shouldn't be denied I have no criminal background. My Man put in a request with the visiting Sargent to see what the hold up is and they haven't got back to him. I tried calling the automated number and I get a recording saying the mail box is full to try again later. Does anyone know a number I can call to talk to someone and find out my status? Thank you.

30-60 days isn't unusual depending on staff and number off applications they're processing.

Dial the main number 661-721-6300 and then try ext. 5706

I called and the officer gave me an extension and told me to just keep calling and trying until I get through. I will call through the day, hopefully I can reach someone. I am trying to plan a trip out there and rent a car.

That's what I thought...what about if something comes up and I can't make it. Can one of his family members go even if the appointment is in my name?

They actually can't and as far as I understand the person that books the appointment has to be present. What you can do is make sure the family member that wants to go has a VPASS Acct.. You can cancel your appointment and that spot becomes available on VPass and his family members can get it.. Very important is that once you cancel it becomes available to anyone looking on VPass so cancel can book right away.. When I don't need my apt and my friend wants one that's what we do and it works perfect. Hope this helps

No his grandma doesn't have an account, and i've never once been able to make an appointment on VPASS. I log in a few min before, and keep trying over and over and every time it says theres no available appointments for a party of ONE! But I use the phone to call and that works so i'll just have to call them! thank you for your response!

You should set up her VPass account and although it is hard booking through VPass you might be able to come here and someone not going might be able to help.

You'd need to coordinate a time to swap with the other person, you'll both be on VPASS...the appts need to be cancelled and then *fingers crossed* the available spots will pop up and you take them. Sort of a gamble, but it usually works out just fine.

Also if all else fails, try the day before you want to visit. People will cancel late the day before leaving time available. We have found available times quite a few times. You are cutting it short but we have been able to find appt the day before. Of course it doesn’t always happen. Good luck

Does anyone have an appointment for Saturday, NOV 12? I'm new to KVSP, so I have nothing to trade, but I haven't had a contact visit in a year and I really want to see my husband tomorrow. Please PM if you are going to going to cancel your visit. Thank you so much!
