  • a household certificate (issued by the municipality of residence)
  • a clear criminal certification
  • provide evidence of the day care of children under 6 (may be issued by a support structure or a childminder). It is also possible to submit an affidavit.
Non-EU-residents: those Au Pairs who come from any Non-Eu-country need to send the application form to the Ministry before leaving for Luxembourg. Once it has been approved, they will be able to apply for a residence permit. In case the Au Pair needs a visa, the embassy of Luxembourg placed in the Au Pair's home country will be the one in charge of the process. Au Pairs in Luxembourg will need to apply for a D-Type visa. 
After the Au Pair arrival:
  • The Au Pair will need to register at the municipality of residence in Luxembourg
  • The Au Pair will have to undergo a medical examination
  • The Au Pair has to apply for a residence permit
