Immigration Bond

Legal Form NumberI-352
SectionU.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement
IssuerU.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement
This bond is posted as security for performance and fulfillment of the bonded alien's obligations to the government. An
acceptable surety company or an entity or individual who deposits a certified check, a cashier's check or a money order
(“cash equivalent”) may execute the bond as surety. The surety is the obligor; the bonded alien is the principal; and U.S.
Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is the beneficiary of all bonds it authorizes. The obligor guarantees the
performance of the conditions of the bond. The bond's guaranty is secured by the amount of the bond. An acceptable
surety company is one that appears on the current Treasury Department Circular 570 as a company holding the requisite
certificate of authority to act as a surety on Federal bonds. An agent of an acceptable surety company (a co-obligor) may
execute the bond only if the agent attaches to the bond a currently valid power of attorney showing the authority of the
agent to act for the surety company or has provided to ICE a power of attorney to be used as part of the eBONDS system.
Any agent of an acceptable surety company is a co-obligor on this bond, and he/she shall sign as a co-obligor in
paragraph D. Failure of an agent to sign as co-obligor shall result in rejection of the bond. A co-obligor shall be jointly and
severally liable with the surety company for any breach of this bond (i.e., the liability of a co-obligor is in addition to, not
instead of, that of the obligor).
ICE may refuse to accept any bond to the extent permitted by law. Obligors and co-obligors (if any) shall state their full
name and address in Paragraph A. If the obligor's or co-obligor's address changes after posting this bond, the obligor
shall promptly submit an Obligor Change of Address (Form I-333) to ICE with the obligor's new address. An obligor or co-
obligor shall sign the bond where indicated in Paragraph D. Either the obligor or co-obligor, or both, may be corporate
entities. In addition, an obligor who deposits a cash equivalent to secure the bond authorizes ICE to deposit the funds in
an account held by the Department of the Treasury (Treasury). By depositing a cash equivalent and executing this
agreement, the obligor certifies, subject to penalties provided by 18 U.S.C. § 1001, that the deposit is not the proceeds of
any illicit activity. Provided that is true, if the bond is cancelled upon issuance of Form I-391, “Notice - Immigration Bond
Cancelled,” ICE will refund the cash deposit and applicable interest to the obligor at the address on file.
