Schedule a Visit Using Email

Check the Facility Status before using the email method to schedule a visit.

Check the Facility Status page for specific video visiting days and reservation instructions. Each facility will provide specific instructions to schedule each type of visit.

When email is required to schedule a video visit to take place on a Saturday or Sunday, your request must be submitted to the institution between Saturday at 8 a.m. and Monday at 8 a.m. the week prior to the visit. Unfortunately, scheduling during modified programming is not flexible — you will be assigned a day and time that cannot be changed. One video visit request per email will be permitted.

Use email for visitation requests for in-person and video visits to CDCR adult institutions. CDCR visiting staff will respond to the submitter. Only use email if instructed by an institution.
