Au Pair in Sweden: contract and insurance

Au Pair insurance in Sweden
Have you signed the contract yet? Do you already know how to purchase the Au Pair insurance? If you feel confused with the paperwork, read this post - we will do our best to clarify your doubts.

The Au Pair contract

In Sweden there is no official template of the Au Pair contract, therefore we highly recommend to use our contract, which can be downloaded from our website.
 
The Host Family and the Au Pair should meet up during a Skype video-call and discuss all the details together. Remember to think of the following points:
  • Schedule - how is the day going to look like?
  • Working hours - when does the Au Pair work? Is the working time flexible?
  • Holidays - how many days off will the participant have?
  • Time-off - when is the candidate free to enjoy the time abroad?
  • Duties and responsibilities of all participants
  • Travel and travel cost - who should cover the expenses?
Have a look at our contract and try to fill in the gaps. If you don’t reach a mutual agreement during the first video-call, do not hesitate to meet up again!

Termination of the contract

The contract between both parties may be terminated if both sides give a notice period of 2 weeks. In case of a serious breach of the contract or some other, unexpected events, the contract may be terminated without a notice, but we do not recommend this.

 

The Au Pair insurance in Sweden

The Au Pair should register with Försäkringskassan - it’s the Swedish state agency responsible for social insurance where the participant needs to register upon the arrival. The participant will not get the same social benefits as permanent residents, although she/he will receive health care, disability coverage and other benefits if necessary. 
 
Participants from EU countries are strongly encouraged to apply for an EHIC and take it to Sweden. They can always purchase an extra, private insurance for additional protection.
 
We have two insurance companies working with us. Both offer special Au Pair insurances for many countries and nationalities. Read more about Dr. Walter or Care Concept

Driving a car in Sweden

If the participant has to drive a car in Sweden, make sure the driving licence is valid in Sweden. 
 
There should be no problem with the driver’s licenses from any EU / EFTA country, but in some other cases the participant’s driver’s license is not valid after crossing the border of Sweden.
