Visiting Inmates

Inmates housed in the Humboldt County Correctional Facility are allowed at least two half-hour visiting sessions per week, unless they have lost their visiting privileges because of a disciplinary sanction. Visiting sessions begin on the hour and half hour. Inmates are only allowed one visiting session per day. Visiting is on a first come, first serve basis.

Visiting Procedure


To visit an inmate, fill out a Visitor Request Form in the public lobby of the Humboldt County Correctional Facility during the inmates scheduled visiting hours. After completing the form, present it to the receptionist, no less then 15 minutes prior to the visiting session you wish to attend, with one of the following forms of identification:
  • Any state driver's license
  • Any state identification card
  • Federal identification card
  • Military identification card
  • Passport
  • A current DMV printout requesting a Driver's License or State Identification card
After entering your information, the receptionist will tell you which visiting booth to use, which elevator to take and which floor the visiting room is on. Please wait in the lobby area until directed by the receptionist through the metal detector to the elevators. The elevators are controlled by a remote operator. There is no need to push the elevator's buttons except to get the operator's attention or in case of an emergency. At the end of the visiting session, please leave the visiting room when asked.  Failing to due so may delay the next visiting session.
