The Foreign temporary familial trainee program corresponds to the true French au pair program. Non-Europeans candidates need to meet the following 3 conditions:

  • be between 17 and 30 years
  • be temporarily hosted in a family, in return for certain family duties (light housework, childcare, ...)
  • come to France to improve their language skills and their general knowledge about France. They must know, prior to their arrival to France, some French. Once in France, they must take French classes


Note

  • The Foreign temporary familial trainee program should not be mistaken for another program named "au pair" 
  • Applying for an au pair visa will make the candidate fall under the Foreign temporary familial trainee program
