What else to consider

We like to be upfront and honest so there are no hidden surprises

We know what it’s like when hidden costs pop up so we want to be totally upfront and honest with you! There are some third party costs included in the programme which are all non refundable 

POLICE CHECK (£54)- This fee is paid directly to the Police Check Authority after you’ve passed your interview and is non-refundable. If you have had an enhanced disclosure done recently or are on the update service then we may be able to accept it

MEDICAL FORM (??) - Everyone is required to complete an Au Pair in Australia medical form which needs to be completed by a GP. We’d love to tell you how much this is going to cost but it completely depends on your Doctor

AUSTRALIAN WORKING HOLIDAY VISA (450 AUD) – this fee is set by and paid directly to the Australian Embassy which is subject to change. However, you don’t have to apply for this until after you have been placed. It’s really easy to apply for and we’ll help you with your application

FLIGHTS TO AUSTRALIA -we work really closely with Student Universe to get you the best flight options and deals. You can select a one-way, return or flexi flight. You can expect to pay approximately £300-700 for flights depending what flight option you choose and the month you depart to Australia.

WHOOPING COUGH BOOSTER- The Australian Department of Health strongly advises that anyone working with children has this booster. Sometimes you can’t get this in the UK so we can book you an appointment to get it done during orientation in Sydney, Australia

WORKING WITH CHILDREN’S CHECK- AIFS Au Pair in Australia is the only au pair agency certified by Australia child protection company Childwise. To maintain this certification all AIFS Au pairs are required to obtain this check when they arrive in Australia during orientation. The price can vary depending which state you are placed in ranging from $80-160 (AUD)
