If you want to spend a year living and working in the U.S. as an au pair, then you’ll need to meet the program requirements listed below.
In order to legally work as an Au Pair in the USA, you need a J-1 visa. The cost of the visa is $160 which must be paid to the US Embassy of Hungary. Be careful! You cannot be an au pair with a tourist visa for 6 months or only with an ESTA form for up to 3 months! This is illegal! The border control in the US might catch you the minute you set foot on American ground and send you back home.
You should clarify beforehand if your host family expects you to drive their car. Should this be the case, you ought to find out if your driving licence remains valid in your host country. What happens in case of damage? Who bears the costs? You should talk this over with you host family and jot down everything. Usually in the US au pair programme, all the families need au pairs to drive because of the long distance between two places. In the case of required driving license, you have to apply for an international driving license in Hungary before your departure. For the international document you must need your ID card, residence card, driving license and two passport-size photos.
