Extended Domestic Visit times and increased visitors at all prisons

Domestic Visit Changes

From 22 February 2021 Domestic Visits will have increased hours and visits at all prisons.

All visitors and prisoners are required to comply with social distancing guidelines.
We will continue to provide virtual (video) visits as part of the new visits schedule.
Visitors are encouraged to continue to access video visits as their first choice to help minimise risk to everybody.

The department is continuously monitoring the situation and will continue to follow the advice of SA Health as the lead agency. Visit information may change at any time if an increased risk of COVID-19 is identified.

Who does this apply to?

This applies to all domestic visitors:

  • Family and friends.

What safety measures apply to visits?

Visits will recommence at stage 3 with the following arrangements:

  • Up to 4 one adult visitor (plus children) per prisoner
  • Prisoner and visitor must sit at least 1.5 metres apart
  • Maximum of 120 minutes.

The visit arrangements at each site, will vary taking into consideration the size of the room, up take of visits and feedback from the prisoner needs meeting.
