The prisoner must complete a Visitor List form (CAJ-334) identifying immediate family members* and not more than 10 other potential visitors. Those persons the prisoner has placed on his/her visiting list must complete a Visiting Application (CAJ-103) to request approval to visit. The Visiting Application must be submitted in advance to allow for review of the Application. INCLUDING A SELF-ADDRESSED-STAMPED ENVELOPE WHEN THE APPLICATION IS RETURNED WILL ENSURE THAT THE PROPOSED VISITOR IS PROVIDED NOTIFICATION OF HIS/HER APPROVAL OR DENIAL TO VISIT. NO VISITS WILL BE ALLOWED WITHOUT THIS APPROVAL.

*Immediate Family Member: A grandparent, parent, stepparent, spouse, mother-in-law, father-in-law, child, step-child, grandchild, sibling, half-sibling, stepbrother and stepsister. An aunt or uncle may be included if adequate verification is provided that they served as a surrogate parent. If there is inadequate documentation in the prisoner's file to confirm this relationship, the prisoner or family member will be required to provide the documentation necessary to adequately confirm the relationship.

A proposed visitor shall be approved for placement on the prisoner's approved visitors list if all of the following criteria are met:

The proposed visitor is not subject to a current visitor restriction.
The proposed visitor is not a prisoner or a former prisoner in any jurisdiction. However, prisoner or former prisoner who is an immediate family member may be placed on the prisoner's approved visitors list with prior approval of the Warden of the facility where the visit will occur.
The proposed visitor is not on parole or probation in any jurisdiction as a result of a felony conviction. However, a parolee or probationer who is an immediate family member may be placed on the prisoner's approved visitors list with prior approval of the Warden of the facility where the visit will occur and written approval of the supervising field agent.
The person is 18 years of age or older, an emancipated minor, or the minor child, stepchild, grandchild, sibling, step-sibling or half-sibling of the prisoner. However, a minor child, stepchild, grandchild, sibling, step-sibling or half-sibling of the prisoner shall not be approved for placement on the prisoner's approved visitors list under any of the following circumstances.
The Department is notified that there is a court order prohibiting visits between the minor child and prisoner;
The Department is notified that the parental rights of the prisoner for his/her child have been terminated;
The prisoner has been convicted of child abuse, criminal sexual conduct or any other assaultive or violent behavior against the minor or sibling of the minor unless an exception has been granted by the Director upon request of the warden. The warden will be notified in writing if an exception is granted.
The proposed visitor is not on another prisoner's approved visitors list except as an immediate family member. In other words, a visitor may be on the list of all prisoners who are immediate family members, but only on the list of one prisoner who is not an immediate family member.
If the proposed visitor is a Department employee, s/he may visit only as set forth in the Employee Handbook.
If the proposed visitor is a volunteer, s/he may visit only as set forth in Policy Directive 03.02.105 "Volunteer Program".

Notwithstanding the above, the warden may deny placement of anyone on a prisoner's approved visitor list for the safety or security of the facility, protection of the public, previous violations of visiting room rules by the proposed visitor or for other reasonable cause as determined by the warden.

Thank You for Your time and Consideration in this matter

        Hello, my brother was recently placed in Carson City and I wanted to plan a visit, I have a minor child that I would like to be able too visit her uncle because he has never seen her, from reading the list of who is specified as immediate family Idnt understand why she wouldn’t be considered as such… Is there any chance that she wowould be able to visit with me.? He’s in level IV… Does that play a factor in if she can or can’t. ?

          Hi Quanisha,

    My son is new to the facility and I would like to come visit but I have a few questions. First off I’m on the visiting list of my cousin in Marquette do I need to be removed, if so how do I do it? Second question is my son has a one yr old daughter and an 16yr old brother that wants to visit him how do I go about getting them on his list?

    Hi, My son’s father was just transferred to this facility. I have a daughter that isn’t biologically his but he’s the only father she knows and he would like for her to come visit as well. My question is will she be able to visit along with her brothers and I?
