What is an Immigration Consultant Surety Bond?
Immigration Consultant Surety Bonds are required for any individual or business that seeks to become a certified immigration consultant in order to receive authority to operate in their given state.
A certified immigration consultant is an individual or business that is authorized to provide non-legal assistance or advice in regards to immigration related matters. These license and permit surety bonds protect both the state public against any unlawful or fraudulent actions on behalf of the immigration consultant.
Obtaining an Immigration Consultant Surety Bond ensures your clients that you and your organization maintain a thorough and updated understanding of all procedures necessary for the completion of immigration documents, as well as guarantees that their specific needs will be treated in a lawful and unbiased manner.
