short program description

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

The purpose of the au pair scheme is to give young people aged between 18 and 30 an opportunity to learn Norwegian and become acquainted with Norwegian culture through living with and participating in the daily life of a Norwegian family.

If not indicated differently, quotes are taken from the The Norwegian Directorate of Immigration and from The UDI's contract for cultural exchange between au pair and host family.

The basic idea of a "working holiday" or "work and travel" is to finance holidays respectively travelling by 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 visum it might be a possibilty provided if he/she comes from one of the following countries:
