An Au Pair in Italy should work 30 hours per week, but their working hours should not exceed 5 hours per day. Working hours may be flexible, but the participant should have at least one day off a week. Of course, the working hours include babysitting!
The money participants receive during their stay is considered pocket money rather than salary.
There are no official guidelines in Italy concerning the Au Pair salary. Nonetheless, the Au Pair should receive about 260 - 300 Euros every month to enjoy their time abroad, pay for the language course and spend money on sightseeing in Italy!
Au Pairs in Italy should enroll in a language course. The daily schedule should allow them to spend some hours every day to study the language. The Host Family doesn’t have to cover the expenses for the language course, but it would be a nice gesture!
If the applicant needs a student visa to become an Au Pair in Italy, they will need to enroll in a course. Read more about the visa application and make sure you know everything.
