Important information about the French au pair program:
Some major changes concerning the au pair regulations in France have recently been implemented. Unfortunately, the French authorities have not yet updated their public information sources to reflect these changes.
We are currently in touch with the au pair authorities in France to get detailed (and official) information about the new procedures that host families and au pairs need to follow. If you currently have any question related to the required formalities, we recommend that you contact the local authorities in France directly (such as the "Service Public Français" and the prefecture) or the respective French Embassy in your home country.
We will be updating our information on the French au pair program as soon as we have been able to obtain the necessary information from official sources in France.
What kind of support does your host family expect from you? How many holidays are you entitled to? Who pays your language course? Here you can find these and many other details about the au pair placement in France.
We are continually researching and updating our host country information, but cannot guarantee that all material provided is complete and correct. If you notice gaps or inaccuracies, we would like to hear from you.
