Visitor Information

General Information
Visitation Call is held on Saturdays, Sundays, and federal holidays. Visitation hours are normally 1330-1530, although changes may occur.  Visits outside these hours must be made by special request by the prisoner and are approved only in very unusual circumstances. Visitors should arrive 30 minutes prior for check-in to ensure visitation starts on time. A picture ID is required. Improperly attired persons will be refused entry. Flip flops are not permitted. No cameras, cell/smart phones/smart watches, or other electronic devices are permitted. Visitors must be on the Mail and Visiting List and approved in advance of the visit.
Annually, around the last week of September there is a Miramar Air Show hosted on Miramar. Visitation will occur during the Miramar Air Show at the same time as regular weekend visitation, but please plan on traffic delays.  Traffic is normally very heavy and the route to the brig can be delayed because of varied traffic patterns that support the air show.
Transportation is available to the brig by rental car.  Taxi, UBER and Lyft may be available, but base access could be denied or delayed. Rental cars are available at the airport and rental car companies can be found in the Yellow Pages.
