According to, au pairs coming to Australia are now allowed to stay with host families for up to 12 months following a ruling made recently by the Department of Immigration and Border Protection.

Working Holiday visas are valid for 12 months. The change removes the six month restriction enabling au pairs to continue to stay with the same host family.

Au pairs who are already in Australia can also choose to apply for an extension through the Department to enable them to lengthen their stay with the same employer for up to 12 months.
