Au Pair


An au pair is in charge of taking care of the children and lives within the home of the family. The au pair is provided accommodation and meals and a stipend of spending money. The family gains a loving caretaker for their children and an addition to the family. Expats have both found work, and employed, au pairs.

What the au pair Must Know

In addition to these requirements, it is common for families to ask for non-smoking, possession of driver's license, responsible or non-drinkers, and for females. Many au pair families prefer native English speakers. Some agencies may also require time spent tutoring, cooking, or cleaning.

What the family has to do

Another excellent place to look is in expat forums. Here, other expats can give advice on the services they use and what to look for.

Visa

If hired through an agency, the agency usually guides the au pair through the process. For more information on visa, consult the section on Passport and visas.
