Au pair age

Countries with established au pair programs limit the age of au pairs they accept. Usually, this age is 28. Au pair programs are designed for young people who want to improve their language skills and learn about the country's culture. I realize many young women want to participate in au pair programs. If there is an age limit for a country, getting au pair visa won't be possible. Some of these countries may have other visas for caregivers. Someone over 30 who wants to be an au pair should talk to the embassy or consulate in their city to find out about these visas. They are the best source to get information. Host family may need to do more paperwork to invite you in this case.
