The Michigan Department of Corrections has launched video visitation to offer an avenue for those incarcerated and their families to connect.
Visitors on the Approved Visitor List of a prisoner will be able to request a video visit once the facility where the prisoner is housed has begun online scheduling. If you are not on an Approved Visitor List, please visit our Visiting a Prisoner Page for information on the application process.
Video Visiting Standards can be found here.
Video Visitation Steps for Approved Visitors
- The Approved Visitor should navigate to the GTL Visitor website by clicking HERE.
- The Approved Visitor will need to create an account on the GTL Visitor website and request to visit the prisoner at their assigned facility.
- Once approved on the GTL site, the Approved Visitor will then be able to request a scheduled video visit for prisoners at that facility.
- Length of Video Visits: 20 minutes
- Cost of Video Visits: The cost of a scheduled twenty (20) minute video visit is $3.20.
- Payment: The video visit must be paid for in advance by the person scheduled the visit.
- Scheduling Window: Video visits may be scheduled no MORE THAN 7 DAYS in advance of the scheduled visit and not after 48 hours.
