From the moment you apply, until the time comes for you to return home - our team will be there for you every step of the way!  Our program includes all the essentials that you’ll need in Australia but there are a few things that aren’t included.  Find out exactly how much the Au pair in Australia program will cost you below.

First Payment = US$99
Second Payment = US$100
Final Payment - US$751

Total Programme Fee = US$950

Total Non Programme Fee = US$1,000

Apply and pay your US$99 deposit - this includes telling us a few details about yourself and your childcare experience.

Complete the rest of your application - there are a few forms you’ll need to complete including a medical form. (We’d love to tell you exactly how much this is going to cost but it completely depends on your doctor.)

Interview - you’ll have either a face to face interview or Skype with the Au Pair team.

Post interview - apply for your police check (cost in the US varies by state). We’ll give you instructions of how to complete this online.

US$100 Assessment Fee - it’s time for our office to do one final check of your application and start the matching process.

US$751 Placement Fee - you don’t have to pay this until we have found you the perfect placement & this confirms that you are going to Australia! This fee also includes your airport transfers, orientation, insurance plus more!

(440 AUD) Visa Fee - this is an approximate figure which can change at any time but we’ll help you with your application.

Whooping cough booster (approx. US$50) - sadly there have been some deadly outbreaks in Australia so the Australian Department of Health strongly advises that anyone working with children has a booster.

Working with children check AUD$80 - you don’t have to worry about paying this until you’re at orientation.

Book your flights! (Approx: US$600-$1,000) - we’ll help get you some quotes with our partners and give you advice on flight options.

A month before you depart you’ll need to apply for your bank account, and be given information about your orientation and airport transfers.

Free onward travel to your host family - this is all included within the programme fee and is paid for by your host family no matter what part of the country they live in.

*Please note non-programme are in bold and are non-refundable

These costs are based on a 6 month placement. Please contact us if you wish to apply for a longer placement.
