Frequently Asked Question

Do you have any questions about the program or our website? We are always happy to help! Find the answers to our most frequently asked questions
What is the age limit to be an Au Pair?
The Au Pair program has specific age requirements for the participants in almost each country. In most of the countries, this age limit is between 17 and 30 years. But there are some exceptions. In Germany and the US for example, Au Pairs must be between 18 and 26 years old. » » »
What is an Au Pair expected to do?
The Au Pair is expected to look after the Host Children and to help the Host Family run the household by doing some light chores around the house. Every Host Family has different needs, but it is important that the Au Pair does not do housework that should be done by a housekeeper. » » »
Is an Au Pair tax-deductible?
It is possible to get a tax refund for childcare in many countries. Whether the costs for an Au Pair are refundable or partly refundable depends on the Host Family’s home country regulations. Furthermore, the Au Pair should always get paid via bank. Cash payments will not be considered by the finance office. » » »
Do Au Pair families pay for flights?
As a Host Family, it is not your duty to pay for the Au Pair's flight. It is, however, recommended to reimburse some of the money, or the entire sum, to the Au Pair once she gets to the Host Country. It is better to do it in instalments, by adding for example a certain amount to the pocket money every month. » » »
