          Video transcript: An immigration bond is a three-party contract among a detained individual (alien/immigrant), a third party (the surety/obligor) and the government. It guarantees the appearance of the released immigrant at all scheduled court appearances throughout the life of the case. There are two types of immigration bonds, a Delivery Bond and a Voluntary Departure Bond. A Delivery Bond allows for the release of a detained immigrant so that they can be out of custody while the court hears their case and they try to obtain legal citizenship. The released immigrant must attend all their court appearances or risk permanent detention or deportation. A Voluntary Departure Bond allows a detained immigrant to be released so that they can leave the country (at their own expense) while their case is being determined.
