Can’t imagine life without your current au pair? If you and your au pair want to keep a good thing going, you can extend together for up to another year!
The U.S. Department of State permits au pairs to request a one-time program extension of an additional 6, 9 or 12 months. Here’s how it works:
The chart below outlines the costs associated with extending with your au pair. The Program and Department of State SEVIS fees are payable to Au Pair USA and due 30 days prior to the extension start. Education stipend and paid vacation are paid directly to your au pair.
|6 months||Up to $250
|9 months||Up to $500
|12 months||Up to $500
Au pairs must receive a weekly stipend from the host family that is at least $195.75 per week. The weekly au pair stipend is a minimum payment requirement and host families and au pairs are free to agree to compensation higher than the legally applicable minimum.
Take advantage of our easy payment plan option and spread your Extension Program Fees out as follows:
Three monthly payments starting 30 days prior to the beginning of the au pair’s extension period. This option requires a one-time financing fee of $190 due at the time of match.
Six monthly payments starting 30 days prior to the beginning of the au pair’s extension period. This option requires a one-time financing fee of $290 due at the time of match.
