Au Pair Norway visa
Au Pairs from countries not belonging to the EU / EEA / EFTA need to apply for a residence/work permit before entering Norway. The application process will take 8-10 weeks, so the documents must be submitted in advance. 

For applicants from Non-EU/EEA/EFTA countries the application fee is 3200 NOK.

Candidates from Australia, New Zealand and Canada can become an Au Pair in Norway under the Working Holiday Scheme.

Citizens from the Philippines usually need a visa to enter Norway. The work/residence permit will not be sufficient to become an Au Pair in Norway for Filipino applicants. AuPair.com encourages the Filipino applicants to contact the Norwegian embassy and find out the exact requirements they need to fulfill.
 

How to apply for an Au Pair residence / work permit in Norway?

The Au Pair will get the residence and work permit at once. To start this application the Au Pair should prepare:
  • A valid passport - it should remain valid throughout the whole stay in Norway
  • A signed Au Pair contract
  • Proof of the host parents nationalities 
  • A passport photo fulfilling the given criteria 
The embassy will need all of these files in English or Norwegian.
 
Before starting the application the Au Pair should contact the embassy or consulate of Norway (or Denmark/Sweden if they represent Norway in some areas) and ask about all the specific details in their case.
 

What else?

  • The residence/work permit allows the participant to stay in Norway for up to 2 years (but no longer than stated in the employment contract)
  • The participant can leave and re-enter Norway during the stay. It is not essential to renew the residence / work permit 
  • In case of single parent Host Families it is necessary to present statements proving the extent of custody given to the parent during the Au Pair’s work / residence application
