How do I send money to someone in prison Task
You can use the Ministry of Justice online service to make a payment by Visa, Mastercard or Maestro debit card. Money usually takes less than 3 working days to reach a prisoner’s account, but it may take longer.
This service is free, secure and available in all prisons in England and Wales.
You can no longer send money by bank transfer, cheque, postal order or send cash by post to any prison. You’ll need to use a debit card instead.
You’ll need the:
- prisoner’s date of birth
- prisoner number
You can get help with making a payment, ask a question about a payment you’ve already made, or get help with accessing the service.
