Au Pair Visa and Travel Updates During COVID-19

Important Arrival Information

You may have some questions about international travel and if any travel requirements will impact your arrival. 

Please be advised that au pair arrivals may sometimes be delayed beyond their original start dates. AuPairCare may need to reschedule arrivals for some au pairs if they are affected by visa delays, travel disruptions, illness, or other unforeseen complications, and we will contact you if that is the case.

We strongly encourage you to factor the information below into your matching and arrival timeline.

Visa Processing 

The majority of US embassy systems around the world are operating normally and routinely scheduling and approving visas. Some delays may be possible depending on local availability.

While au pairs are carefully screened and qualified, it can sometimes take longer than originally planned for their US arrivals. Please allow time from match to arrival to account for potential delays. Inquire with your Matching Account Manager for more information. You may also visit the US Department of State's visa wait times page for their visa wait-time information

For all countries, we recommend au pairs follow the visa application process as outlined by their local overseas representative and subject to embassy guidance. To avoid any additional delays to your arrival, we ask that au pairs update their portal with their visa appointment date once scheduled, and reach out to their local representative with any questions.

Au Pair Arrival Information

  • Please visit the CDC's webpage on international travel for current information on travel into the USA.
  • Wearing a mask over your nose and mouth is recommended in indoor areas of public transportation (including airplanes) traveling into, within, or out of the United States and indoors in U.S. transportation hubs (including airports).

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's website has further information and guidance on precautions, or you may review their helpful travelers' health page.

Other Travel Delays

Au pairs should review their AuPairCare travel instructions carefully, prepare for potentially long lines at the airport, bring enough spending money for additional meals in case of last-minute delays or cancellations, and communicate proactively with AuPairCare Flights Team if support is needed on their travel day(s).

Thank you again for your continued support of the au pair program. We witness daily the benefits that international cultural exchange brings to all participants and we look forward to continuing to joining au pairs and host families together.

Quality care for every family size

Changing daycare schedules, using vacation days for sick days, and increasing costs as families grow - these are a few reasons that many parents choose the stability that comes with an au pair. Our transparent pricing empowers you to budget your childcare for the entire year:

  • Costs around $1,500 a month or around $8 an hour
  • 45 hours a week on a schedule you choose
  • Choose to host an au pair for as little as 6 months or up to 2 years
  • Program costs remain the same - no matter how many children are in the family
