The word "Au Pair" is a French term, which means "on par" or "equal to", denoting living on an equal basis between the host family and the children. An au pair will typically be a young woman and sometimes a young man from a foreign country who is typically seeking new cultural experiences, and who chooses to help look after the children of a host family and provide light housekeeping in exchange for room, board and salary. Au pairs also often wish to improve their foreign language skills. Au pairs generally stay with their host family for up to one year. An au pair is not considered a domestic employee and is also not a nanny. See Au Pair & Nanny Differences and Au pair Salary for more detailed information.
According to the Argentine Consulate office in Chicago, au pairs are admitted to the country under a standard temporary visa. The applicant must be at least 18 years old. There is no stated upper age limit. All work visas must be approved by Immigrations in Argentina only, after employer presents legal work contract and all other requirements are met. Once approved, the work permit will be mailed to the Consulate of the jurisdiction of the applicant to issue the visa. Applicants living outside Argentina should contact the nearest Argentinean Embassy and request the Embassy to contact the Policia Federal to obtain your Federal Police record. Applicants already in Argentina should apply directly to the nearest office of the Policia Federal.
