Visiting at FDC Miami is limited to immediate family members. Before you can visit you must be placed on your relative’s approved visiting list. Your relative is given a visitor information form when he or she arrives at the facility. Your relative will complete his or her portion of the form and mail a copy to the potential visitor. The potential visitor completes all remaining form fields and sends the completed form back to your relative’s address (which will be listed on the form). Once the potential visitor is approved, the visitor can visit his or her relative.
Visiting hours are determined by what housing unit the person is assigned to. Visitors should check with their relatives regarding visiting hours. See this link also for visiting days and hours at FDC Miami.
