Immigration Consultant Bond Guide

Several states require surety bonds as part of the immigration consulting licensing application process to mitigate unlawful practices. Learn how to become a bonded immigration consultant in this guide. 

What Is an Immigration Consultant Bond?

Immigration consultant bonds, a type of license and permit surety bond, ensure consultants comply with immigration industry rules and regulations. They protect clients from illegal or unethical practices. 

How Does an Immigration Bond Work?

Immigration bonds act as a legal contract between three parties: 

  1. The principal is the consultant purchasing the bond. 
  2. The obligee is the government agency requiring the bond as part of the licensing process. 
  3. The surety is the provider issuing the bond and financially backing the principal. 

If the bonded consultant fails to conduct business according to the contract terms, the surety protects harmed parties from financial loss up to the full bond amount.
