Return Au Pairs
Au Pair in America initiated a request to change government regulations that previously restricted au pairs to a one-time cultural exchange option under the J-visa regulations. In July 2008 a new rule went into effect (62.31 (p) Repeat Participation) opening opportunity for former au pairs who meet the following criteria to apply as a ‘Return’ au pair. Criteria for returning au pair is based on successful completion of her initial program, including her education component; is able to demonstrate she resided outside the U.S. for at least 2 years following completion of her initial program; is between 18 and 26 years of age; and is able to meet the other regulatory requirements of her application.
