Video Visitation

The Michigan Department of Corrections offers video visitation as 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.
