Au Pair Invitation Letter

The invitation letter is one of the most important documents when it comes to applying for a visa.
Along with the contract, it is evidence for the Embassy that the Au Pair will take part in the Au Pair program in the Host Country and is being invited by a Host Family to live with them.
Read our article to find out more information about this and find the template of the letter here.

In case the Au Pair needs a visa to get to the Host Country, she will have to have two main documents sent from the Host Family to bring to the Embassy:
  • The Au Pair contract signed by both the Host Family and the Au Pair: you will be able to download a template of this contract here. The Host Family will need to edit it according to the specific case, adding details such as tasks, schedule, holidays, pocket money, etc. The Host Family will have to sign it and send it to the Au Pair.
  • The invitation letter: this document shows that the Au Pair is invited and welcomed into the family living in the Host Country. For this reason, it will have to include the address of the Host Family and it will also help to outline the responsibilities and duties of the Au Pair.
To help our users, we have created an example letter with the information which needs to be included.
