An approved visitor is defined as: A visitor that submitted an application for visitation, processing has been completed, and approval by institutional staff may request a video visit.

Approved visitors must create an account and register with JPay.  When family members register to have a video visit, they are prompted by JPay through a series of steps to achieve their visit.  Video visits must be scheduled at least 24 hours in advance of the time that they are requesting.
