Q: What do I need to have in place to hire a nanny who is not a U.S. citizen?
More information is needed to answer this question. Is the person already in the U.S? Do they have a valid work permit card? If you are planning on hiring someone from abroad you should sponsor their visa and create an employer-employee relationship. I suggest you talk to an attorney about this matter.
All the best.
