In case the Au Pair needs a visa to get to the Host Country, she will have to have two main documents sent from the Host Family to bring to the Embassy:
  • The Au Pair contract signed by both the Host Family and the Au Pair: you will be able to download a template of this contract here. The Host Family will need to edit it according to the specific case, adding details such as tasks, schedule, holidays, pocket money, etc. The Host Family will have to sign it and send it to the Au Pair.
  • The invitation letter: this document shows that the Au Pair is invited and welcomed into the family living in the Host Country. For this reason, it will have to include the address of the Host Family and it will also help to outline the responsibilities and duties of the Au Pair.

How can an Au Pair get a visa? is an online matching agency, therefore this question is beyond our scope of responsibility. But we will do our best to help you nonetheless! Usually the best source of information is the embassy of the host country placed in the Au Pair’s homeland. Requirements vary depending on both the Au Pair’s nationality and the host country, but usually a letter of invitation from the Host Family and a signed contract are needed to start the visa application. Other documents may be different depending on each individual case, and in case of the US, assistance of a local full-service Au Pair agency is also necessary.
