prerequisites for au pairs

Au pair
World

age

18 - 30

language skills

As most families want the au pair to teach their child English, it's necessary to speak English fluently (at least at B1 level).

Before being matched with a family, the supporting agency will normally make an interview to test the English skills of the au pair.

education

There are no prerequisites regarding the school education or if the au pair needs to hold any special degrees. 

Nevertheless, most families will prefer an au pair with high school diploma and also with childcare experience.

marital status

For obtaining the visa, there are no restrictions regarding the marital status of the au pair.

children

For obtaining the visa, there are no rules if the au pair is allowed to have children on her/his own or can be accompanied by them, but normally host families won't accept an au pair with children.

definition of family

As there is no official au pair program, there's also no official definition of a family which can become a host family.

In general, every mother and/or father living together with a child can become a host family.

languages of family

The language of the family is not relevant for getting a visa for the au pair.

Usually host family in China all speak Mandarin, part of them can speak Cantonese, some host family can speak a little English due to the business reason, little of host family can speak fluent English but every au pair have a coordinator to help them balance the relationship with the host family and also clear the language problem.
