Visa Programs
There are many types of visas available when it comes to being in the U.S. legally. Au pairs generally are granted a J-1 visa, but there are other types which we will briefly mention here:

  • J-1 visa. A J-1 visa is an exchange visitor visa that is particularly well suited for an au pair or nanny. Most au pairs will fall into this category. If you have more questions about J-1 visas you should visit: The U.S. State Department

  • F-1 visa. An F-1 visa is a student visa, but this visa typically enables the student to work only on campus, so is not appropriate for an au pair.

  • H-1B visa. An H-1B visa is a visa that enables non-U.S. residents to work in "Specialty Occupations". Only 65,000 H-1B visas are issued each year for up to three years, but may be extended. H-1B visas may be extended for a maximum of six years. An H-1B holder may apply for a Green Card. In general, an au pair position will not qualify as a specialty occupation.

  • H-2B visa. An H-2B visa allows people to come to the U.S. temporarily, mainly for non-agricultural jobs, in which the U.S. is in short supply of U.S. workers. Up to 66,000 H-2B visas are issued each year.

For additional information regarding U.S. visas visit: The U.S. State Department
