short program description

The au pair program is open to young people from any country. There are only different rules for EU/EEA/CH vs. the rest of the world.

If not indicated differently, quotes are taken from the brochure "Working as an au pair for German families, Labour Market Permit" which can be downloaded from the homepage of the Bundesagentur für Arbeit.

The European Agreement on Au Pair Placement, contains framework regulations on living and working conditions, language classes, social security as well as the rights and responsibilities of the host family and the au pair. Although this agreement has not been endorsed by the Federal Republic of Germany, it is in general followed. In addition, over many years au pair contracts in Germany have also given rise to certain norms.

These norms and further regulations and information can be found in this country information.

The basic idea of a "working holiday" or "work and travel", is to have the opportunity to fund holidays and traveling by taking on several short term jobs. Therefore, this program is not primarily intended for au pair jobs, but if the au pair is e.g. too old for an au pair visa, then it might be a possibilty.

More information can be found at the homepage of the German Mission (in German or Taiwanese) or you can use the Google translation to English.
