Use this service to book a social visit to a prisoner in England or Wales.
You need the:
- prisoner number
- prisoner’s date of birth
- dates of birth for all visitors coming with you
The prisoner must add you to their visitor list before you can book a visit.
You’ll get an email confirming your visit. It takes 1 to 3 days.
What you need to know
Contact the prison directly if you need to arrange any of the following:
- legal visits, for example legal professionals discussing the prisoner’s case
- official prison visits if you don’t have the prisoner’s date of birth and prisoner’s number
- reception visits, for example the first visit to the prisoner within 72 hours of being admitted
- double visits, for example visiting for 2 hours instead of 1
- family day visits - special family events that the prison organises
