Flights, Visas & Insurance
Depending on the Au Pair OE programme and country that you choose, either Au Pair Link or our relevant partner agency will book your flights, organise your insurance and help you apply for your visa. For detailed information on what’s included in each programme and the associated package costs please refer to the Au Pair OE programmes & pricing section of our website.
Au Pair Link takes care of everything required to get you to your destination - so you can begin your year as an Au Pair. Through our partnership with STA Travel we can arrange your flights - making the whole process simple and easy for you.
To book your flight with Au Pair Link simply download and complete the Travel Booking Form. Once you have completed the Travel Booking Form follow the instructions on the form itself and email it directly to Au Pair Link at firstname.lastname@example.org. The Au Pair Link Travel Booking Form must be completed for all countries other than the United States of America (where our partner agency will organise your flight instead).
Please note: Our Au Pair OE programme pricing is based on flights out of Auckland. Prices may fluctuate depending on your place of departure. For more information please contact us.
We provide comprehensive travel insurance through Cover-More – one of New Zealand's most trusted insurers since 1986. You must have insurance as an Au Pair with Au Pair Link – for any unforeseen medical expenses, accidents or lost/stolen property etc during your year as an Au Pair overseas. It is mandatory that you take our insurance policy (unless insurance is already included in the programme package e.g. for the USA, China and Germany) as we need to be satisfied that you are appropriately covered.
The countries/programmes where travel insurance is included in the package cost i.e. no additional cost to the Au Pair are as follows:
Please note: The insurance policy details and cover provided for the above countries does vary. Please contact us to discuss your specific insurance requirements to ensure that you are appropriately covered.
To view our insurance policy details and the schedule of benefits please download the Cover-More Essentials Brochure. Our Au Pairs are typically covered under the Travelsure Essentials Policy with a standard excess of only $100.00 per claim. Please contact Au Pair Link on email@example.com for all advice concerning your insurance (please note, in some instances medical insurance is required as a visa condition).
Au Pair Link will assist you with your visa application to become an Au Pair overseas, however, you are required to directly pay for any visa application or associated costs yourself. The visa application process and cost varies from country to country. For example, for the Au Pair USA programme the US Consulate requires all applicants for J-1 Visas to be interviewed in Auckland. To get the right advice and support please ensure that you contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss the visa application process for your Au Pair programme and country of choice.
