4. Sign an au pair contract

  • Once an au pair and a family agree on all the details, such agreements should be written in the au pair contract. In doing so, both parts know their rights and obligations.
  • It is also essential that the au pair is covered by an au pair insurance during the whole au pair stay.

5. Prepare for the au pair stay

  • If the au pair needs a visa, then the host family and au pair need to prepare all the documents themselves.
  • Organise the arrival of the au pair. Exchange information about the date of arrival, flight or train number and make arrangements for meeting the au pair.
