Au Pair & Visa Regulations in the UK

The UK highly welcomes au pairs from EU-countries and from countries that are members of the Commonwealth of nations. The au pair must be between 18 and 27 years old.

Aur Pairs

The au pair scheme
The purpose of the au pair scheme is for a young person to go to an English-speaking host family in the UK to learn the English language and culture. They become part of the family.

Preconditions
An au pair must be single with no dependants. An au pair in the UK must be able to support herself/himself and may not depend on public funds.

The host family
A host family does not necessarily need to consist of a wife, a husband and children. However, one person living alone cannot be a host family. The family must be resident in the UK and English should be the normal language spoken within the family. The au pair should have her own bedroom and her own bathroom.

Age
From 18 to 27 years

Duration of the stay
The stay of the au pair will probably last between 6 and 12 months. 3 months available during the summer

Holidays
There are no uniform regulations about holidays for au pairs. Most families accept 1-2 weeks paid holiday for au pairs who stay 12 months.

Travel costs
The au pair must bear the travel costs herself/himself.
