From 26 September 2020, DCS will recommence domestic visits at all prisons.

Visitors will be able to make bookings from Monday 21 September 2020.

The following arrangements will apply to face to face visits including:

  • A limit of one adult visitor (plus children) per prisoner
  • Prisoner and visitor must sit at least 1.5 metres apart
  • Maximum of 45 minutes.

We will continue to provide virtual (video) visits as part of the new visits schedule.

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.

We thank you for your understanding and cooperation as we continue to work hard in keeping COVID-19 out of our prisons.
