If you are going to stay up to 3 months. Citizens from USA, Canada, Australia, New Zeeland are allowed to entry to Spain without a visa or a tourist visa.

Actually in Spain we don’t have an especial visa for au pairs so, you must apply for a student visa, if you want to stay in Spain for more than 3 months.
In order to obtain an au pair visa and can stay as au pair you must provide to the Spanish Embassy in your home country the following documents.
:: Student VISA:
- Certificate of enrolment in a Spanish course for at least 20 hours per week. It must be a recognize centre of Instituto Cervantes. So this means that you will have to be hosted in a family living in a city/town where you can attend Spanish classes. Click here for more information.

HI Jena, in addition to the letter of invitation from the host family you will need to be enrolled in a Spanish school and have a health insurance. Please contact the Spanish Embassy in the Philippines for further requirements.
