On Thursday March 29, the Australian Government announced a travel ban on all non-residents and non-citizens coming to Australia. The ban will take effect from 9pm on Friday March 20th. As a result, AIFS Au Pair in Australia will be suspending all applications until further notice. When the travel ban is lifted, we will recommence our program.
