    Hello and welcome!

    Working as an au pair is a great way to become familiar with another culture, discover life abroad, and/or to practice and improve a foreign language.

    What advice would you give to prospective au pairs in Cyprus?

    How did you find your family? Are you part of an agency? How did you find your agency – by putting up an ad or through word-of-mouth? You may use EasyExpat’s Au Pair listings in Cyprus.

    How do you like the work and your family? Are you offered pocket money? What tasks are you asked to do – cleaning, cooking, or just childcare? Do you have free time?

    What other activities do you like to do? Are you able to make friends? Have you had to learn the language?

    Please share your experience with the other forum members. Many thanks in advance! :D

    Hi!

    I live in Cyprus, I am Italian and I would like to host an american Au pair from January on. I asked the woman from the HR at my husband's company but she told me that this option is not possible in Cyprus. Can this be true??? It sounds so strange to me. She told me that If I want a nunny I have to follow the Domestic Worker procedure.

    Could you help me?

    Thanks!
    Ida

    Hello Ida,

    You will find more information in our article about au pair in Cyprus.
    Maybe the HR lady, used to work regulation and work visa, thought that it was similar? Indeed if you want to employ a au-pair outside the European Union that person will need a visa, but it can be arranged.
    You will find plenty of testimony on the Internet.

    Best of luck and see you soon on the forum :wave:
