Au Pair Definition - Who is an Au Pair?

Au Pair Definition
An Au Pair is a young person that wants to experience another culture and learn a new language by living in a foreign country with a Host Family. In exchange for a private room and some pocket money, the Au Pair takes care of tasks related to childcare and easy household chores. They are considered temporary "big brothers or sisters" for the Host Children and will hopefully become a new additional member to the Host Family. 
 
Au Pair Visa Check
In some cases Au Pairs might need a visa or a work permit. Use our visa checking tool to find out whether the Au Pair needs a visa.
