Your Au Pair contract is necessary for your visa application at the Austrian Embassy. Make sure you read it and agree on the points established on it.
In order for your visa to be granted, you will need to prove you have a valid insurance that covers the complete length of the stay.
Make sure you get your criminal record and birth certificate. You will need a German or English translation for both documents and legalize them before applying for the visa.

To be an Au Pair in Austria you require a “Sonderfälle unselbständiger Erwerbstätigkeit” (Special Case of employment) visa. This is also called an "Au Pair visa" by some embassies.
7. Organize your trip
Book your flight and pack your things for this experience. Remember to keep the important documents (such as passport with visa, the contract and family contact details) with you. It is possible that you have to show them to the officer during passport control.
