      Immigration Bond Information

      for the Essex County Correctional Facility

      Delivery bonds (i.e., immigration bonds) cannot be posted in-person directly at the Essex County Correctional Facility. Instead, family members or associates can post an immigration bond at any of the 82 ICE-ERO facilities around the country that accept immigration bonds. The closest facility that accepts immigration bonds is located at 970 Broad Street, 11th Floor, Newark, NJ 07102. The number there is (973) 645-3666. Immigration bonds can be posted Monday-Friday (except holidays) at this facility from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM. Bonds cannot be posted directly at the Essex County Correctional Facility.

      To post an immigration bond for someone detained you must have a money order, cashier’s check or certified check. If the bond amount exceeds $10,000 and over, you can only pay by single cashier’s check or a certified check. All payments should be made to the “US Department of Homeland Security” or “Immigration and Customs Enforcement.”

      If you do not want to post the bond in-person yourself, you can also have a licensed immigration bond agent post the bond for you. For a small fee, ranging from 2% – 10%, an agent can post the bond for you electronically, so that you do not have to travel to the ICE-ERO facility. This process is typically faster and easier than posting a cash bond in person.
