Do you meet the necessary requirements?
Do you have at least one child under 18 living with you?
Can you provide your au pair with a separate room at home?
Is your au pair expected to look after your children and help you with light housework?
Do you speak Norwegian in your daily lives and represent Norwegian culture?
Do you have a different nationality than your au pair and are you not related?*
Have you successfully completed the online course  "the Purpose of the Au Pair Scheme" from the Norwegian government?**

* If you are not a citizen of Norway and if you have the same nationaliy as your au pair, you may still become a host family, provided that you have been living in Norway for more than 10 years.

**This course is a requirement of the Norwegian government and it is mandatory for all the families, who want to host an au pair at home. Although the course can be completed by just one parent, it is highly recommended that both be enrolled in it. The certificate of the course can be required by the Norwegian authorities and it is mandatory for au pairs applying  for a visa.
