Au Pair in Italy: contract and insurance

Au Pair insurance in Italy
In this post we hope to help you with two of the most important issues you are going to face: the Au Pair contract and the insurance. 
 
The contract is the legal base of the Au Pair program. It’s important to discuss all the points of the contract and sign it before the Au Pair’s departure. It will help to express expectations and to reach an agreement. 
 
The insurance is equally important! Depending on the host country and the participant’s nationality, there are different rules regarding this matter. If you are looking for some essential information regarding the Au Pair insurance in Italy, you are in the right place. 

The Au Pair contract

There is no official Au Pair contract in Italy, but since it is important, you can use the AuPair.com template. If you have additional points, you can always add all the necessary details. 
 
The Host Family and the Au Pair have to discuss the contract before the stay begins. Participants from Non-EU countries need to clarify this question before the visa application. 
 
Along with the statement of insurance, the contract will be mandatory during the visa application. Therefore the Au Pair should receive an original version of it, signed by the Host Family and present it at the embassy.

Termination of the contract

If an issue has occurred and both parties can't find a solution to it, they can terminate the contract. There is a 2 weeks notice period given to both the Au Pair and the Host Family. During the fortnight, both parties should be able to find a solution and look for a replacement. 

 

The Au Pair insurance in Italy

The Au Pair will need an insurance while being in the host country. The insurance should cover the whole length of the program.
 
Italy belongs to the European Union, therefore Au Pairs from EU countries are insured by the EHIC and can receive medical help in Italy. We recommend to get an additional private insurance, because the EHIC does not cover all necessary treatments. You can find more information about this case in the next section.
 
Au Pairs from other countries will probably need some additional insurance - read more about it here.

Health insurance for EU citizens in Italy

All the Au Pairs heading abroad within the borders of the European Union should have the European Health Insurance Card. The EHIC allows the Au Pairs to use public health services in every European Union member country on similar terms to local people. 
 
Nonetheless, the participant should keep in mind that the reimbursement of national health services may be different in every country. Even if the service might be free of charge in the Au Pair’s homeland, it doesn’t necessarily mean that it is the same in Italy. 

Health insurance for Au Pairs from other countries

The Au Pair in Italy has to be insured. Otherwise, in case of any misfortune, the cost of the medical treatment may be overwhelming. 
 
To receive an extra protection, you need to get a private health insurance. In this case, the Host Family should cover the costs.
 
There are two insurance companies that normally insure Au Pairs of AuPair.com, whether they are from a EU country or a Non-EU country. Feel free to read about Dr. Walter or Care Concept. These companies offer special Au Pair insurances, so the participant doesn’t have to worry about anything during the stay.
 

What else?

  • In case of stays longer than 3 months, the participant should register with the Italian National Health System (Servizio Sanitario Nazionale). The family should cover the cost of the registration.
  • To be covered by the Servizio Sanitario Nazionale, the codice fiscale, a tax number is necessary. The Au Pair can apply for the number at the local tax office.
