Official regulations establish that the visa is granted to young men and women between 18 and 28 years old who meet the requirements. In order to apply for it the following must be done:
The applicant will need a valid passport and a copy for your appointment at the embassy.
Au Pair contract
The contract includes the most important points of the stay (working hours, pocket money, holiday and else) and is signed by both Host Family and Au Pairs.
Au Pairs must fill out the application form provided by the Belgian embassy.
Clear criminal record
This document can be requested at the local police. An official translator will have to make a translation. A list of approved professionals is normally found at the embassy’s website.
Candidates must present Employment Authorization Type B for Au Pairs (the Host Family must request the permit in Belgium).
