Chapter Summary

Although United States prisoner transfer treaties provide various ways for initiating requests for transfer, in practice, federal prisoners initiate requests by completing and signing Federal Prison System Transfer Inquiry Form. The prospective transferee's inquiry form, together with other relevant information concerning his personal history and his role in the commission of the offense of which he was convicted, including his Pre-Sentence Investigation Report, are forwarded by the institution in which he is incarcerated to the U.S. Bureau of Prisons in Washington, D.C., which in turn forwards them to the International Prisoner Transfer Unit, Office of Enforcement Operations, Criminal Division, U.S. Department of Justice (IPTU). After a transfer request by an offender convicted in the United States has been approved by the United States, the IPTU will notify the appropriate foreign authority to secure that country's approval. Federal offenders ordinarily are transferred within one or two days of verification.
