Default Bring a friend as a nanny

Hello

We are having a baby in August. I was planning to bring a friend of us from Brazil to work as a nanny for us. We don't want to use any aupair agencies because they charge tons of money and have a limitation on the age (she is 28 now).

We are green card holders. How we are supposed to do that?

Thanks

USCIS has information about this on their website. I think I read it in the instructions for B1/B2 visa. You can also search murthy.com forums or IV or forums on this topic.

My understanding is that she can come on B1/B2 visa, but requirement would be that she would have to show atleast x years of experience as care giver (nanny/household help) or must have worked for you or your family in this capacity in the past for at least 1 year.

I am just going by memory. I read about this a long time ago.

Good luck and congratulations

Interesting.

From what I remember a person on B-1/B-2 cannot be employed in the US. Here is what the US Consualate in Japan says about it http://tokyo.usembassy.gov/e/visa/tvisa-niv-b1.html

I would suggest you to consult an attorney because you don't to jeopradise your legal status by employing somebody who is not authorized to work in the US.

B1/B2 visa holders are not allowed to work, you would need to apply for a work visa similiar to H category. Please consult a lawyer to find under what visa category will the nanny be allowed to work legally otherwise you or putting your own status in jeopardy.

Default nanny

There is a Nanny visa category (B-1). Again, you need to find prevailing wage in your area for nanny (through LCA) and once you get her from Brazil, pay her that wage. You also need to justify, what is "special" in your case of your baby's case that you need someone from Brazil to accomplish that. I am not kidding...it is doable, however it is tough. See this
