Working Holiday Visa

A Working Holiday Visa (WHV) is a permit allowing foreigners to live and work in a host country for a specific period of time. Whether you can apply for this visa or not depends on your host country and nationality. That means, your   prospective host country and your homeland must have this arrangement. 

Can the Working Holiday Visa be issued to Au Pairs?

Yes! A Working Holiday Visa is a type of permit usually issued for au pairing abroad. We recommend to check the regulations between your country and the future host country. All the information is available at the host country’s embassy placed in your country. 
 
What kind of visa do you need?
Depending on your nationality and your host country, different kind of visa may be issued to you. Sometimes no visa is needed at all! Learn more

If you can't become an Au Pair in your dream destination country with a WHV, ask the embassy which kind of visa you need.
