Default How to get a date to visit?

I was approved for visitation at BOP Terre Haute, IN and now I am trying to set up dates, but I was told my inmate has to set those dates for me. They won't even tell me if I am still on his visitor list. Is this the norm?

Hi Chucksbabe, I moved your post to the federal forums for better information.
I dont know the procedure for visiting a federal inmate but if you are approved to visit, thats got to be half the battle right there.

Hopefully someone who knows procedure will chime in to assist you!

Hi there ,here are the visiting redulations for the Terre Haute complex including the USP, FCI (Medium) and camp https://www.bop.gov/locations/instit...isit_hours.pdf
Federal visiting does not operate on an appointment system you turn up on visiting days first come first served.
They normally dont like you to arrive too early so check the time they start processing visitirs and arrive as close to that time as you can.

They wont tell you if you are on your LO's visiting list, he will have been notified and he will have signed to accept the visitation request so it is his responsibility to tell you.

I hope you have a great visit.

Welcome to Prison Talk.

Visits to FCI and USP Terre Haute are limited to 7 visits per month (one visit can consist of up to 5 visitors), so you should check with the inmate to make sure they still have remaining visitor's points for when you want to visit.

V, E
Inmates at the USP and FCI will be allowed seven (7) visits during a calendar month.
Any portion of a visit will be charged as one visit. The visits are not accumulative from
one month to another. A completed visit is defined as the visitor(s) departing the
institution property and the inmate departing the visiting area, returning to his assigned
quarters or work assignment.
