Au pair - не е ли само за младежи - девойки главно, необвързани. Едва ли някой ще й даде виза за au pair - а и те са само за 1 -2 години (Щатите мисля не дават повече от 1 година за au pair.)
Ето информация за условията за САЩ - няма да стане
The au pair program offers qualified young people the opportunity to live and study in the United States for one or two years, in exchange for providing up to 45 hours of childcare per week. The au pair program was recently granted permission from the U.S. Department of State to offer a second year extension au pair program (6, 9, or 12 months), as well as a summer au pair program.
At the same time, the au pairs are required to complete an educational component of six semester hours of academic credit or its equivalent. At the end of one year, au pairs generally return to their home country, unless they and their host families choose to extend their stay for 6, 9, or 12 months. The au pair can also choose to extend their period in the US with a different family. Most au pairs choose a family in a different part of the country, allowing them to have a different experience.
The rules of the Au Pair Program in the US are clear: au pairs are provided a private bedroom, meals, remuneration tied to the minimum wage (presently $139.05), July 23 $157.95 2007, July 23, 2008 $176.85, July 23, 2009 $195.75 one and one-half days off weekly plus a full weekend off each month, two weeks' paid vacation, and the first $500 toward the costs of required course work to be completed at an accredited institution of higher education in order to satisfy the requirements of the educational component of the program. Au pairs are not to work more than 10 hours a day/45 hours a week. They are not to serve as general housekeepers or assume responsibility for household management.
The US EduCare Au Pair Program is also available for families with school-age children. In this program, the au pair works a lower number of hours (not more than 10 hours a day and not more than 30 hours a week) for a weekly minimum wage of $105. The family pays $1000 in educational expenses, and the au pair is required to complete 12 hours of academic credit.
Au pairs placed with families who have children under 2 years old must have at least 200 hours of child care experience with infants under 2. Au pairs may only be placed in a family with an infant under 3 months old if a parent or other adult caregiver is also home and fully responsible for the infant.
The Au Pair Program is administered by the US Department of State. Participating families and au pairs must work with one of the currently 12 approved agencies. Au pairs enter the United States on a J-1 Visa.
Basic Application Criteria:
Must be aged 18-26.
Have professional or practical childcare experience for at least 200 hours if looking after a child under 2.
Agree to commit to a full year’s stay in the USA and be prepared to provide up to 45 hours of childcare a week.
Have completed their secondary school education.
Be proficient in spoken English.
Have no criminal record.
Have not previously been an au pair in America.
There are 12 agencies designated by the State Department to run the Au Pair Program, which are reviewed in the Comparison of US au pair agencies.
Може да се пробва като бавачка, но най-сигурно и лесно е да е дойде да учи. И то да се опита да си намери мастерска програма - по-лесно става отколкото за бачелър. Тъй като е вдовица се надявам да няма проблем да се издадат визи и за децата. За мастерската програма може да се потърсят връзки в БГ и един вид да се спонсорира. Да се намери работодател, който да се подпише, че спонсорира студента да получи мастерска степен. Така по-лесно дават студентски визи от посолството.
Според мен за H1B е много по-трудно. Освен, ако нямаш познат българин, който би се навил да кандидатства за фиктивна такава (познавам такива хора, но е много по-сложно и рисковано).
