STATE RIN: 1400-AC82 Publication ID: Spring 2021 
Title: Exchange Visitor Program--Au Pairs 

The Department is proposing to amend existing Exchange Visitor Program regulations to provide more flexibility for au pairs to meet the required educational component of their exchange programs. This proposed rule will also consider increasing the limit on the amount of the contribution that host families must provide au pairs toward the cost of completing the required educational component and expanding the options available to au pairs to meet this requirement. In addition to the proposed changes in the educational component, the Department is proposing language that clarifies the intent of some existing regulatory requirements, and requires the development of organizational specific statements of policy.
