the placement of an Au-Pair:
- After the host
family has made contact with me they get a questionnaire,
which they must then fill out completely and send back. I can then start
looking for the Au-Pair that fits with the family according to the correspondence/
ideas the host family gave me. The family can also choose an Au-Pair
- Once the family
has received the necessary information and chosen their future Au-pair,
my agency recommends contact between the family and the Au-Pair to get
a better impression.
- If the chemistry
is correct, there will be an Au-Pair contract between the host, the
Au-Pair and the agency because every side has rights and obligations.
If this shouldn't be the case, the host family gets a new arrangement
or suggestion as quickly as possible.
- As soon as the
Au-Pair contract is signed and the application fee paid, the family
receives an model invitation letter from me which the Au-pair needs
for her/his application for the required Au-Pair visa. This letter must
contain the complete address of the family and of the Au-Pair, the duration
of the stay, a description of the job, the maximum working hours, the
amount of the pocket money, the type of accommodation and the positive
answer of a health insurance and a third party insurance for the Au-Pair.
- The embassy will
check if the Au-Pair has basic knowledge of the German language and
will contact the German authorities.
- The family will
receive some documents from their employment office (Arbeitsamt)
or the Immigration Authority (Ausländeramt). The completed
documents must then be send back to the respective authority.
- The host family
gets the address and phone number of their Au-Pair and the possibility
of getting familiar with each other.
- After the au-Pair
has entered the country she must be registered by the family at the
employment office (Arbeitsamt) and municipal registration office (Einwohnermeldeamt).
- In case of problems,
difficulties, uncertainties or communication difficulties, I will be
the contact and try to solve the problem!
