One of our most applied for bonds here at Surety1 is the California Immigration Consultant Surety Bond.
If you are intending on working in the immigration consultant industry, the Secretary of State requires that you obtain and file a copy of an $50,000 surety bond. This bond is meant to ensure that you, acting in the capacity of an Immigration Consultant, do not commit any type of financial harm against the general public and provide your services as guaranteed.
At Surety1, we of course offer this bond at a great price. We start them off at a minimum of $900 for two years*. All you need to do to obtain a firm quote for your surety bond is complete an application on our website: www.surety1.com. From the main page, click “Apply Now”, and you will be directed to the online application where you can choose “Immigration Consultant Surety Bond” for $50,000.
The Secretary of State typically requires that this bond be in the name of your business–if you do not yet have a business name, we can write it in your personal name, and you may change this to your business name later through a rider. Additionally, the bond does require your business address–therefore, when you are applying, be sure to include your business address so we can include this on the bond.
Once you receive your bond from us in the mail, you must file it with the California Secretary of State.
