Au Pair in Finland: Contract and Insurance

Au Pair insurance in Finland
Safety is an absolute must when it comes to the Au Pair stay. One document which gives the participants and the Host Family security is the Au Pair contract signed by both parties. Besides that every participant should have a suitable insurance during the whole stay. Thus it is important to get as much helpful information about it as possible.

The Au Pair contract

Finland doesn’t offer a specific contract so you can just use the official contract of AuPair.com and modify it according to your needs. This document should include some important points, such as:
The participant can join the Au Pair program in Finland only once and he/she can stay maximum 12 months (it is not recommended to stay for a shorter period than 6 months). 
 
The contract is really important for the Au Pair’s visa application, so the family should provide the applicant with it and a letter of invitation.

Termination of the contract

Sometimes there are some disagreements between the two parties and it seems that there is no solution to them. Both have the opportunity to terminate the contract then, as long as they keep a 2 weeks notice period. During this time the Host Family and the Au Pair have the opportunity to find a replacement.

 

The Au Pair insurance in Finland

The right insurance is essential for a safe stay. There might be some differences between the insurances depending on the applicant’s home country.

Health insurance for the EEA citizens in Finland

If the participant has the European Health Insurance Card (EHIC), usually some medical treatments will be covered in Finland. But you should always think about an additional private health insurance. Participants from Northern countries, Australia and Quebec can have all the benefits of the Finnish healthcare system since residents of those countries benefit from social service agreements.

Health insurance for the Non-EEA citizens in Finland

Participants from Non-EEA countries (except Australia and Quebec) need to close a health and an accident insurance policy for the whole stay, before the departure. The Host Family must cover the insurance costs. 
 
We also have two partners that offer special Au Pair insurances, Dr. Walter and Care Concept.

Car insurance and driving license

Participants with driving skills have an advantage in some countries, though it’s not an official requirement in Finland. If the applicant has a driving license, he/she needs to make sure the license will be valid in Finland.  
 
Participants with driving licenses from an EU, EFTA or one of the Nordic countries can legally drive in Finland. 
 
If the participant’s permanent place of residence is in a country that has signed the Geneva and Vienna Convention on Road Traffic and he/she has a national or international driver’s license he/she can drive in Finland.
