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.

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
How long does it take to hire an Au Pair?
It depends on many factors: how active you are on the platform, how specific your search criteria are and how good your profile is. We recommend to create a profile with pictures and text in the description boxes and send 10 - 15 messages a day to find an Au Pair more quickly. » » »
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. » » »
How much does an Au Pair cost per week?
The weekly cost of an Au Pair depends on different factors: pocket money, food expenses and utilities, as the Au Pair will live with the Host Family. Check our article on the different pocket money amounts according to the Host Country and get informed on how much having another person in your home will cost. » » »
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. » » »
