* IMPORTANT NOTICE: Beginning April 1, 2017 the IDOC will no longer accept any correspondence on colored paper or enclosed in colored envelopes. Incoming correspondence to offenders must be in a plain white envelope and the letter/correspondence inside the envelope must be on originally purchased, plain white, lined paper (no photocopies). Click here for a copy of the policy.
The Indiana Department of Correction has two options to submit a request to visit:
- Online application: All visitors must be on an offender's approved visitors list in order for the application to be considered. To fill out an online application, once you have contacted the offender and the offender has stated to you that they had submitted a request to add-on/update their visiting, then you may submit your Electronic Visitation Application via www.jpay.com. If you do not have a JPAY account, you will have to open a free account. When this is completed, you will be able to access the online visitation application version, which can be filled out and submitted electronically. Individuals applying on-line may go back to the JPAY site to check to see the status of their online application.
- Printed application: To fill out a paper application, please contact the offender and request that they send you a copy of the visitation application. The completed application must be mailed to the offender's IDOC facility. Faxes and emails are not accepted. The offender will notify visitors if they have been approved or denied.
Regardless of the process chosen visiting applications must be filled out completely in order to be processed. If you are uncertain as to whether you are on an offender's visitors list or to check the status of your printed application, you may contact the offender you wish to visit.
Choosing the electronic visitation application will also allow you to see whether you have been approved or denied once your application has been processed after a few days. Please do not call the facility to check on your visitation status; this information cannot be given over the phone. For more information please see the IDOC Visitation Policy and Visitation Guidelines.
