Voluntary Departure/ Bond Returns

If you were arrested in the United States for an immigration violation and chose to leave voluntary,  the Attorney General may require that you post a voluntary departure bond, to be surrendered upon proof that you have departed the United States within the time specified.  In this case, you must prove that you have returned to Israel by appearing at the U.S. Embassy. 

Our reception hours for bond cases are on Thursdays at 14:00.  You have to bring your current passport, any U.S. visas you possess, the documents you received from USCIS or the immigration judge in the United States, and the original boarding pass from your return flight to Israel.   

Please note that the money bond which was deposited on your behalf in the USA will not be returned to you at the Embassy. The consular officer, after a short interview with you, will sign the paperwork that you received from the USCIS and return it back to you.  The Embassy will notify the US Authorities about your return to Israel by providing them with a copy of the same paperwork.
