Process

Our registration process is very easy, we start with a Skype interview on a date and date that suits you. During the Skype interview, we discuss our “Guide for host families’ and we assess whether your family meets the legal requirements of the Au Pair program. We will discuss all your concerns and answer all questions you may have.

In case you are interested in our full service, we will also discuss your wishes regarding the Au Pair. After the Skype interview we can continue with the mediation process and the search for a suitable candidate. Based on your requirements, wishes and needs, we as Au Pair International will send through possible candidates that suit your needs by e-mail. We then schedule Skype conversations with the candidates of your choice. If you have found your ideal Au Pair, there is a match!

At the self-match service, we will contact your Au Pair candidate. We will schedule an appointment for a Skype conversation. Au Pair International will conduct an interview and we will request the necessary documents for the registration and application of the visa and/or the residence permit.

After the registration of the Au Pair and the host family is completed, we will request (if applicable) the application for the visa and / or residence permit from the IND. Following the approval of the request, we will assist in obtaining the return ticket and required insurance.

During the stay of the Au Pair with your family we have four standard contact sessions. The day that the Au Pair arrives in The Netherlands (you as host family should inform us of the Au Pair’s arrival in The Netherlands). There will be three other contact sessions, spaced out throughout the year, to monitor the progress and success of the exchange year. During the last conversation we will discuss your plans with regards to a possible new Au Pair candidate.
