In the Gaston County Jail, inmates must fill out a visitation form prior to anyone visiting them. The form included listing people that are to visit the inmate. If a visitor's name is not included, he cannot visit. Jail visitation dates and times vary based on the inmate's last name.
Visiting is limited to 15 minutes per inmate. All visitors over the age of 16 must have identification. Anyone 15 years old or younger can only visit in the company of an adult who has valid identification. Visitors have their identity verified at the visiting area and must obey all rules of the Gaston County Jail.
