Quick Check for au pairs

Are you interested in becoming an au pair in France? Do you wish to live with your host family and take care of their children? In this case, you should do our Quick Check to find out whether you meet the necessary requirements.

Quick Check for au pairs
Are you 17-30 years old?*
Are you ready to stay in France as a "stagiaire aide familial étranger" for a minimum of 3 months?
Do you have a nationality that is not French?
Do you have a basic knowledge of French?
Are you single and without children?
Can you pay for your travel costs?
Are you a student in your home country or do you have a school leaving certificate equivalent to the French baccalauréat?
Are you prepared to take a French language course while you are an au pair in France?


Have you answered all questions with "Yes"? Great! In this case, nothing stands in your way to an au pair stay in France!

Have you answered one or more questions with "No"? In this case, you unfortunately do not meet the necessary requirements to become an au pair in France. Maybe you wish to pick another great host country?

* Should you be older than 30, you may be entitled to work as an au pair if you are about to finish your studies. The local DIRECCTE in charge will decide from case to case.

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.
