At Au Pair International you can choose between paying the placement fees for the au pair events in instalments via a subscription or paying once via an invoice. The costs also depend on the required immigration formalities, and whether you opt for the self-match or full service.
Below we have worked out which rates apply per situation.
You can choose between the self-match service (you have already found an au pair yourself), or the full service (we help you find a suitable au pair match). Below you will also find the costs that apply if you want to take over an au pair who is already staying in the Netherlands with another host family (relocation).
Important At Au Pair International you do not pay any hidden costs such as a mandatory contribution for the au pair's flight ticket, an additional contribution for the excursion program or training or costs for additional screening by a foreign partner agency.
