Things to Consider

Weekly Stipend

Each family is unique and so is the terms of their placement. With AIFS your family is expected to provide a cultural exchange with room, full board and weekly pocket money. This table is a guideline only.
In some cases your a family's arrangements may be considered employment. Click here for the Au Pair Association's guidelines.

Classic & Plus
Working with Children Check

All Au Pairs are required to complete a police check in their home country and obtain a Working with Children Check (WCC) upon arrival. Au Pairs placed in NSW will complete their WWCC during orientation. Families residing outside of NSW must ensure your Au Pair completes the relevant WWCC for your state or territory. Au pairs cover the costs of their WWC.

Time off

Your Au Pair must have sufficient time off during the placement to explore and travel. This should include at least one week’s paid time off (or paid the equivalent in pocket money) during the placement and 1.5 days off per week.

One-way Transport

Host families are responsible for transportation for the Au pair from their port of arrival to your home. This may include the costs of a bus, plane or train ticket.


All first time families must provide references. In addition, an online National Criminal Police check must be completed for every person aged 18 years or older who will be residing in your household during the Au Pair's placement. The cost of the check is current $42.00

Car Insurance

The Au Pair must be included on your car insurance policy if they will be using your car. Please refer to our Handbook for more information about driving.

Completion Bonus

Upon completion of a 6-month placement you are required to pay your Au Pair a completion bonus of $300. This is pro-rata payment for longer placements.
