After you have matched with a host family and have obtained a J-1 visa, Au Pair USA will arrange and pay for a one-way flight from one of Au Pair USA’s designated airports in your home country. You are responsible for the cost of any transportation to the departure airport.
In order for Au Pair USA to arrange and pay for your return travel, you will need to successfully complete your au pair program in good standing which includes the educational requirements of the program. If you leave the program early, you are responsible for the costs of your return travel.
Four months prior to the end of your program, you will be able to submit your return travel request in Passport. You’ll need to submit your request no later than 45 days prior to the end of your program. Your return travel should take place no later than 30 days after the end of your program.
If you submit your return travel requests with less than 45 days remaining on your program, you will be charged a $200 USD late fee and the difference, if any, between the actual flight cost and the customary cost of a ticket purchased during the Flight Request Period. If you request a return flight after your program has ended, you will be responsible for arranging and paying for your own return.
If you want to make changes to your return flight request after it has been submitted, you will be charged a $200 USD change fee plus the difference, if any, between the new flight cost and the actual or customary cost of a ticket previously requested, as determined by an InterExchange travel agent.
It is your responsibility to be present for all flights and other transportation arranged by Au Pair USA. You must notify Au Pair USA if your travel arrangements change. If you do not take a flight that Au Pair USA has purchased for you, you will be responsible for reimbursing Au Pair USA for the cost of the ticket.
You will be responsible for all airline baggage fees that are not included with the ticket provided by Au Pair USA.
