Stay longer: Our Au pair extension programmes
Many au pairs in Australia have the time of their lives and don't want their au pair experience to end after only 6 months abroad. That's why we give you the chance to extend your stay for up to 12 months or combine it with a another programme.
You're enjoying your time as an au pair in Australia so much that you wish to stay for longer? Extend your au pair adventure by another 3-6 months (12 months max). You have the option to continue your stay with the same host family (in agreement with your host family) or find a new family for your extension period.
Your working holiday visa allows you to stay in Australia for the duration of one year. This gives you the opportunity to combine your 6-month stay as an au pair with another great programme, e.g. work and travel!
