The J-1 Visa for Au Pairs

The Au Pair category of the J-1 Exchange Visitor Program allows a caring live-in childcare provider between the ages of 18 and 26 to live as an extended member of a host family in exchange for room, board, and a stipend. Whilst the main priority of a successful applicant will be to take care of the kids, they should also have free time to enjoy life in the U.S.

The prospective applicant must have received an offer as a childcare provider with a family in the USA* and must:

  • Be 18 to 26 years-old and in good health
  • Have a genuine love of children and childcare experience
  • Speak and understand English
  • Be a secondary school graduate
  • Have an international driver's license and a minimum of 50 hours of driving experience
  • Be a non-smoker if required by the host family
  • Be of good character and receive a police clearance report
  • Be prepared to commit to 12 months away from home
  • Have not previously lived in the U.S. as an au pair

In addition to providing childcare, au pair responsibilities may include:

  • Dropping the kids off at school or activities
  • Picking them up from school or after-school activities
  • Helping with homework
  • Helping to keep the kids' rooms clean
  • Cooking light meals for the kids
