Au Pair Costs
At Expert AuPair, we are committed to a policy of no hidden fees. The table included below is a full disclosure of the fees you will pay to our company. We have also included a list of additional costs you may incur while on our program. These costs are not paid to Expert AuPair, and are approximate. They depend on many factors, including the city in which your host family lives and your own spending habits.
Please note that we will not ask you to pay until you have been approved for your US visa. You must pay the US Embassy to apply for your visa, but our fees are not due until your visa is approved. Do not pay fees to us unless you're sure the request has actually been sent from an expertaupair.com email address -- do not fall for a fraudulent email scam.
Processing fee: $500 - Only after your visa has been approved
Air fare supplement: $0 - $500 Only after your visa has been approved
TOTAL: $500 - $1,000 depending on country
Additional Expected Costs
We estimate that you may incur other costs during your year in America. Of course your cost will vary depending on your lifestyle, and whether you want to travel home at some point during the year. All of the costs listed below can easily be covered on your weekly wage, which will be at least $195.75.
You are responsible for travel to the American Embassy or Consulate in your country, and the cost of travel to your departure airport.
Most au pairs spend money to travel around the U.S. after the end of their program.
We expect most au pairs will spend $1,000.
Airfare Supplements By Continent
The cost of a flight to the United States is significantly more expensive from some countries than it is from others.
Our airfare supplements are designed to equalize the expense to host families of each ticket.
