After your program application is approved you will need to apply for your visa.
In general, Au Pairs from Australia and New Zealand travel to Germany with an Au Pair visa. It offers a certain set of regulations in order to protect both the host family as well as the Au Pair. However, that visa also includes some limitations and requirements, which are reflected in our eligibility criteria.
The other option is for Australians and New Zealanders to travel to Germany on the Working Holiday visa. Both visas need to be applied for prior to departure from home.
Here is some information about visa requirements and the application process. However, your main source of current information must come from the Germany embassy in Australia or New Zealand as this will allow you to select the most appropriate visa for you, given your personal circumstances.
