Upon receiving all of the necessary documentation, your file will be sent to our placement partner abroad which will then be reviewed within 24 hours. The matching process with a host family then begins. Once your dedicated au pair consultant has received information from our placement partner about a potential host family, you will be notified immediately so that you are prepared for your telephone call from the host family. Having accepted your host family, your next step will be the visa application and upon approval you will be on your way.[/vc_column_text][/vc_accordion_tab][vc_accordion_tab title=”Cost involved”][vc_column_text]
