I visit newly captured items all the time.  If you capture something (I
have C-M-r bound to org-capture) and store it with C-c C-c you can visit
it immediately with a double prefix  C-u C-u C-M-r as stated in the
org-capture docstring:

,----
| C-M-r runs the command org-capture, which is an interactive autoloaded
| Lisp function in `org-capture.el'.
| 
| It is bound to C-c r, C-M-r.
| 
| (org-capture &optional GOTO KEYS)
| 
| Capture something.
| 
| Uses keymap "org-capture-mode-map", which is not currently defined.
| 
| This will let you select a template from `org-capture-templates', and then
| file the newly captured information.  The text is immediately inserted
| at the target location, and an indirect buffer is shown where you can
| edit it.  Pressing M-x org-capture-finalize brings you back to the previous state
| of Emacs, so that you can continue your work.
| 
| When called interactively with a C-u prefix argument GOTO, don't capture
| anything, just go to the file/headline where the selected template
| stores its notes.  With a double prefix argument C-u C-u, go to the last note
                     ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
| stored.
  ^^^^^^
| 
| When called with a `C-0' (zero) prefix, insert a template at point.
| 
| Lisp programs can set KEYS to a string associated with a template in
| `org-capture-templates'.  In this case, interactive selection will be
| bypassed.
