Visitors will need to be reviewed for approval after submitting information about any criminal history, employment with DOC and relation to the offender. Once approved, a visitor can request a visitation appointment with an offender. Available dates and times will be listed for that offender and facility.
Once approved with paper application (provided by offender), you will need to register at https://idoc.gtlvisitme.com/ to schedule in-person and online visits. (Note: Do not create GTL Visit Me account until after your paper application has been approved)
All visitors must register and be approved before scheduling a visit. Visitors who have already registered for video visitation through GTL will not need to register again.
All scheduling is being done through the GTL website at https://idoc.gtlvisitme.com/. Scheduling on GTL is for Eastern Time. So even if a facility is in an area that is Central time, all visits will observe Eastern time. If you are unsure of your time zone you may check it HERE.
