  Televisit
 
 
   

The televisit system is an alternative to family members visiting prisoners who are detained in institutions far from their home. Visits are conducted through video conferences that are expected to reduce expenses and time of family members. They only need to go to the nearest prison where this facility is available to visit the prisoner via the televisit system.

This system was established to facilitate and encourage visits by family members and indirectly fosters family ties and reduces the stress of the inmates as they serve their sentences. This facility is provided without any charge to the family or the prisoner.

The televisit system is available at:
1. Kajang Prison- Tel no.: 03-87364620
2. Simpang Renggam Prison - Tel no.: 07-7550990
3. Taiping Prison - Tel no.: 05-8072177
4. Penang Prison - Tel no.: 04-2289562
