SIRI has extended the suspension of granting of au pair permits until the 15th of April 2021. This suspension might be extended.
The pending applications and applications sent from the 3rd of February are being rejected.
If your application is turned down as a result of these restrictions, the case processing fee (which host family has paid to SIRI) will be refunded, but the Embassy / Visa Center fee might not be refunded.
We recommend all applicants to postpone handing applications until a new decision is made.
