We looking for Au pair
Host families must meet certain requirements in order to be eligible for the au pair system.
The parents must commit to providing accommodation (an independent room), care and a payment of at least 80.00€ per week. The family must provide as much information as possible in the application about the au pair’s role in the home, as well as their free time. The hosts will arrange for your pick up from the airport on the day of arrival or the cost of a taxi if it is not possible to pick you up.
If the au-pair is from a country outside the European Union, the host family will pay 50% of his/her medical insurance and will take into account that obtaining the visa may be long and may be denied.
Upon arrival of the au pair you must dedicate some time and explain to her/him the functioning of the home, rules of the house, the use she/he can make of the television, the telephone and the internet, the rules regarding visits of friends, etc. It is almost a must that there is wifi at home.
