Remote reception


The Center has followed MOJ instruction open for “remote reception” service since Jan 2004 to facilitate inmate’s relatives meeting the inmates by video equipment at correction authorities close to their residences rather then taking long distance travel to the retention center/prison distant away.


1. Objective inmate’s spouse, direct-blood relatives, indirect-blood relatives within the most close three tiers and the spouse’s indirect-blood relatives within the most close two tiers, no more than three persons.

2. Remote reception time 14:00~16:30, Monday to Friday (working days only)

3. Frequency once shift (half an hour) per a week.

4. Terminate application qualification if applicant fails to the authority providing the said remote reception

Application procedure

1. Attach the related proving document to the application sheet, such as the census register copy or else.

2. Select suitable shift and send the application form to the respective correction authority by registered post or fax (for the first application), or phone call (being approved to make remote reception before) one week in advance.

3. After the correction authority has approved the application, it will inform the applicant to schedule for the reception date and time.

4. After receiving the approved notice, applicant should follow the reception schedule to the authority implementing the remote reception operation; carry ID document and fill out the “Remote Reception Registering Sheet” and start to meet the detainee remotely by web network.

2. Except being confined by the exception of Article 34, Code of Criminal Procedure, that the jurisdictional judge or prosecutor may count on the case status and restrict the reception scope to public defender and dutiful defending lawyer, it should not be restricted by the above items.
