The Au Pair program in Australia is not yet officially handled by the government, so the rules are mainly taken from the international Au Pair program. There are general principles that Au Pairs and Host Families should respect.
The participant can enroll in an English language course while being in Australia. The applicant should cover the language course cost. It’s also possible to discuss this with the family.
To become an Au Pair in Australia the participant will need a visa. So the applicant will need to prove that they have enough savings and can cover the travel expenses to go there and to return to the Host Country. Nonetheless, it is possible to discuss with the Host Family to see if they are willing to share these costs with the participant! We recommend refunding any money only after the Au Pair’s arrival.
