Document guaranteeing passage of an individual to a specified location upon completion of contract work or upon suspension of contract work for any reason.
Repatriation bonds are guarantees given as inducements to workers who might otherwise be wary of leaving their own worlds with no assurances that they could return. They are commonly used by relativists, asteroid miners, mercenary units and freelance ecological engineers.
Repatriation bonds are usually administered by a large financial institution which holds the necessary funds in escrow. They are available and recognized in many polities throughout the Sephirotic empires, Deeper Covenant, and a number of independents.
