When a bailor can get a bail refund

If bail is not forfeited by the court, you will get a bail refund within 21 working days. The full amount pledged in cash or cash equivalents will be returned only after the accused's case concludes, or when the court grants you permission to be discharged as a bailor.

How you will receive the bail refund

If you pledged physical cash, cash via NETS or cashier's order as security, the total bail amount will be credited back into the bank account you provided when first posting bail.

If you pledged monies in your savings account, fixed or time deposits as security, the court will inform the respective bank to unfreeze your account.
