Utah Governor Gary R. Herbert signed Senate Bill 144 into law March 23, 2012. The law, which requires an immigration consultant surety bond, went into effect on July 1, 2012.

These bonds must be issued for $50,000. The bond amount can be used to benefit any person damaged by

  • fraud
  • misstatements
  • misrepresentations
  • unlawful acts
  • omissions
  • failure to provide services of an immigration consultant (or an agent, representative or employee of an immigration consultant)

This immigration consultant surety bond is required before an individual can apply for an immigration consultant permit in Utah, which makes it a type of license and permit surety bond. These bonds protect consumers by ensuring professionals work according to licensing laws and other industry regulations.
