Visiting an Inmate at Warren Correctional Institution

The North Carolina department of correction encourages friends and family members of inmates who demonstrate a positive influence to communicate and visit with an inmate. This can help the inmate in the rehabilitation process, and eventually with his or her reintegration back into society.

To visit an inmate you must fill out an application form.  Inmates must mail this form to you and can have a maximum of 18 applications.  An application must be completed for each adult and minor. Completed applications must be sent to the inmate at the institution they reside.  Inmates cannot just fill out an application for a person as it requires the applicants signature and sworn statements.  Incomplete applications will be REJECTED.

Applicants over the age of 16 must attach a copy of his or her drivers license to the application. Driver License ID and State
issued ID’s must be issued by any State Division of Motor Vehicles. Anyone under the age of 16 must have a copy of their birth certificate attached to the application.

It is the inmate’s responsibility to notify the visitor of their application status.

It is the visitor’s responsibility to update their application information. (i.e. address, phone numbers, etc.) Incorrect application information could lead to an approved visitor becoming disapproved.

Upon reaching the age of 16, a minor must update their visitor application  to include a copy of a photo ID.

My son was in craven correctional and I was mailed an application so I could visit with him the application was mailed back to the facility for approval but he has been moved to Warren Correctional on 8/14/14. How do I know if my application has been approve. Or do I need to fill out another one.           Thanks I am just a mother who would like to see her son. Donna from Newport N.C



Hi Donna,

As far as your application for visitation goes, it should have transferred with him. Here is the number to the visitation line @ Warren 252-456-2820 and they should be able to tell you the status of that application. I wish I would have seen this sooner, but I hope this info helps!
