Police allege the woman forged documents so she could be hired as an au pair.
Detectives also charged the 31-year-old with handling stolen goods, after she was allegedly found with a passport and driver’s licence in July which had been stolen from a Brighton East woman last year.
The woman has been remanded in custody and will appear in the Bendigo Magistrates Court on Monday.
The investigation is ongoing.
