Step 1: Find a family
Use AuPairWorld to find a suitable family.
Step 2: Check the validity of your passport
In order to enter the Netherlands you will need a valid passport, which needs to be valid for at least half a year after you have left the Netherlands.
Step 3: Your host family chooses one of the recognised au pair agencies in the Netherlands
If you wish to stay in the Netherlands as an au pair, your host family must register with an au pair agency, in order to welcome you to their home. Only an officially recognised au pair agency of the IND (Dutch Immigration Office) is authorised to set up an application in your name.
The agency will assist both you and your host family throughout the entire duration of your stay and will provide all necessary documents and information, as well as the au pair contract.
