Earthquake and Tsunami in Japan

1 minute

InterExchange is deeply saddened by the earthquake and tsunami in Japan.

If you are a Japanese participant on our Au Pair USA program please be sure to contact your family in Japan to ensure that they are safe as soon as possible. If you have any concerns or questions, do not hesitate to contact us at or 1.800.AU.PAIRS

If you are an InterExchange participant located on the West Coast of the United States or Hawaii or are currently traveling in that area, please remain alert and follow safety procedures.  There is a tsunami warning in effect for Hawaii and the coastal areas of California up to Oregon. A tsunami warning means that all coastal residents in the warning area who are near the beach or in low-lying regions should move immediately inland to higher ground. Please check the local weather reports and obey all local authorities regarding evacuation, safety and relocations. YOUR SAFETY IS A PRIORITY.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.  Our toll-free phone number is 1.800.AU.PAIRS or you can email
