How to Become an Immigration Assistance Provider in Georgia
Immigration assistance is defined by the state as any service provided to clients for compensation related to immigration matters, not including legal advice or assistance requiring legal analysis, judgment, or interpretation of law. Georgia law requires that Immigration Assistant Providers complete the following to obtain their license:
Post a $5,000 performance bond
Submit a license application with the Georgia Secretary of State and pay a $40 registration fee.
Consent to a criminal background report
What Is The Difference Between A Notary Bond and Immigration Assistance Provider Bond?
Immigration bonds protect the public against errors committed during the immigration consulting process, not those involving notarization. If you are currently a Notary and apply to become an immigration assistance provider, you will be required to post the mandatory immigration bond.
