FLIGHTS LEAVING FROM JOHANNESBURG INTERNATIONAL AND CAPE TOWN INTERNATIONAL

JCR South Africa will process your application for an au-pair stay in the United States of America if you are from South Africa, Botswana, Namibia, Lesotho or Swaziland.   

Thank you for your interest in our American cultural exchange programs. With the exception of the Summer aupair, you can fly at anytime during the year.

If  you have been an aupair once before in the USA, you can go again as long as you have been back home in South Africa for at least two years!
