Default Applying for FDOC visits with UK address / ID?

Hey Everyone. I'm new here and i wondered if anyone could give me a little advice. I'm in the UK and my partner is currently in the Florida prison system. Does anyone know how to fill out the visitation form? What do i write for the address part? I really don't want it to be rejected for something stupid like that. Thanks in advance!

There is a forum that is strictly for Florida if you scroll down some, they should be able to help you out in that one. The moderators may move your post as well when they see it to help out. Welcome to PTO!!!!!

Hi Emms - welcome to Prison Talk. I moved your thread to our Florida visitation forums (assuming this is a Florida state prison and not Federal system) so hopefully someone familiar with FLDOC will comment soon!

Hello & welcome to PTO I'm not sure what you're asking, you mean what do you put for your address? I would think that you'd put your street address, which should match the address on whatever picture ID you'll use when you go visit.

Hey thanks for the welcome! My address is a UK one which is also on my id and so i'm hoping they'll accept that since it's not a US address.

There are folks all over the world that visit inmates at U.S. prisons. I'll change the title of your thread a tad so others will know what you're asking

Yes, you write your address as it appears on your passport. Also write your normal phone number (with country code, because Americans can't always figure that bit out).

I can't guarantee it will help, but in many prisons, coming a long distance to visit means the prison will be more accommodating to you. Make sure you read all the requirements about what to not wear at visitation - and bring at least one extra set of clothes with you to visitation just in case, like the kind of clothes you'd wear to church.
