If the inmate is in the intake process at Alhambra or the intake process in Perryville, please don’t submit an application. The applicable fee needs to be paid within 30 days, anything outside the 30-day timeframe will result in the application being rejected. If it has been rejected, you’ll need to wait for another 180 days before you can reapply.

If you’d prefer to do the application other than by doing it online, you can do the printed application process. You just need to print out the application form, print it out then submit it to the Unit Visitation Office where the prisoner is being detained. Here are a few things to always remember.

If the inmate is in the intake process in Alhambra or Perryville, refrain from sending an application. All mailed forms must be in an envelope reading: “Attention Visitation Officer – Background Check Fee” when the fee is already enclosed. If not, it must read: “Attention Visitation Officer”. Finally, please don’t send the application to the inmate, it needs to be sent directly to the UVO otherwise it will be rejected.

For both forms, always remember that the information must be accurate. Since you’re attesting to the truthfulness of the application, a background check will be conducted on every individual looking to apply for visitation or phone privileges.

Every adult visitor will have to pay a one-time fee of $25.00 for the background check. If it’s just phone calls without visitation, then there’s no need to pay for the background check fee since it won’t be conducted. All documents will be processed within 60 days.

It’s going to be the inmate’s responsibility to inform their friend or relatives on what was the result of their application.
