Visitation information will not be provided over the telephone or by email. The inmate must inform all visitors of the date and time scheduled for visitation.

Visitation at the Gwinnett County Jail occurs everyday except Wednesdays and Fridays. Children under the age of 17 may visit every Saturday and Sunday when accompanied by an adult (17 years of age and above). If a question arises about the age of a qualifying adult, it will be resolved only with proper identification. At no time will children be allowed to remain in the lobby area without adult supervision.

It is the inmate’s responsibility to notify visitors of all scheduled dates and times. You must present a valid picture ID to visit. A valid ID is a state approved driver’s license, passport, or state issued identification card. Arrive at least 15 minutes prior to your scheduled visit. Each visit is limited to a maximum of 30 minutes.

Clergy Visitation Information:

Ministers are permitted to conduct minister visits during visitation hours in a regular visitation booth. The Jail Administrator, jail shift operations section commander, watch commander or designee may grant approval for a minister’s visit during non-visitation hours.

Ministers shall not substitute a “minister visit” for a regular visitation. For example, if a minister’s spouse is an inmate, the minister shall follow the procedures for regular visitation for that inmate (i.e., two visitation periods per week).
