In-Country Au Pairs

AuPairCare has a limited number of au pairs who are already in the United States and available for placement. Au pair availability is limited and dependent upon factors such as the au pair's current location, childcare qualifications and date of availability. The program fee for an in-country au pair is $650 for each month remaining on the au pair's visa and is due in full prior to the au pair's arrival. Families are responsible for the cost of the au pair's transportation to the new community.

*AuPairCare offers a Family Friendly Payment Plan for a 9-12 month in-country match. Please contact billing at 1-800-428-7247 before requesting your match.
