2. Au Pair wages and hours


Wages

Au Pairs in Italy are entitled to a monthly amount of 260 euro

The Au Pair should pay for the travel expenses in order to get to Italy but Host Families often offer to share the costs if the experience has been positive but this is not a must.
 
Please do not transfer money to the Au Pair before its arrival! If you want to pay a share of the travel costs, arrange an installment payment with the Au Pair, starting after the Au Pair's arrival.

Hours

The working hours of an Au Pair in Italy are 30 hours / week. 


3. Time off and holiday


The Au Pair will be entitled to a one day off a week and this day will be Sunday at least once a month. Furthermore, the Au Pair will have 4 week's paid holiday for a 12-month period.


4. Length of stay


Being Au Pair in Italy usually means a minimum stay of 3 months and a maximum stay of 12 months.


5. Does my Au Pair need a visa?


  • EU-citizens don't need to apply for a visa in order to become an Au Pair in Italy. They will only need a valid passport / ID.
     
  • Non-EU citizens need to apply for a visa. Dependind on their home country they will need to apply for a different kind of visa.

6. Insurance


Au Pairs from EU countries

  • Au Pairs willing to stay in Italy less than 3 months will be usually covered and they will only need to get their European Health Insurance Card with them. We recommend you to pay for an accident and liability insurance for your Au Pair.
     
  • If you are willing to stay in Italy more than 3 you should still ask for the European Health Insurance Card and try to register with the National Health System in Italy. All the additional fees must be paid by your Host Family. It is highly recommended for the Au Pair to have an accident and liability insurance during the Au Pair stay.

Au Pairs from Non-EU countries

  • Citizens coming a Non-EU country need to arrange a private health insurance in order to be covered during their whole stay. The Host Family will be the one in charge of bearing the costs.

7. What should my Au Pair do / NOT do?


The Au Pair will be mostly in charge of the children and all duties should be somehow related to childcare. Following some examples of what an Au Pair could do:

  • The Au Pair can play with the kids, help them do their homework, entertain them
  • The Au Pair can help the children to get ready for school / bed
  • The Au Pair can take children to school / other activities and pick them up
  • The Au Pair can prepare light meals for the children
  • The Au Pair can help with some light housework

Depending on the family, the duties of an Au Pair may slightly change. But we will provide you with some ideas of what an Au Pair should NOT do:

  • An Au Pair should not cook for the whole family
  • An Au Pair should not look after someone else's children
  • An Au Pair should not take care of pets
  • An Au Pair should not clean rooms that are exclusively for the family's use
