AuPair PROGRAMM in AUSTRIA: Application

You apply to one of our partner-agencies in your country or you send your complete application forms directly to us. An direct application is only possible, if you’ve already been an Au pair in Germany, England or USA and show good references from your former host family. You should plan your stay as an Au Pair in Austria for at least 6 months, because for a shorter period its very difficult to find host families. Basically host families prefer Au Pairs whom participate in their family life for an entire year, because the children are not forced to get used to a new person they got attached to every couple of month. Sometimes a 8 to 12 weeks stay in summer is possible.

You may apply every time right away, but at least 2 months before your departure.
The application needs to be composed in German language or at least in english and consists of:

  • Complete questionnaire with a friendly passport photo
  • Character reference
  • Childcare reference
  • "Dear family letter" in German
  • German-skills-evidence (translated certificate from school or acknowledgement of German classes of at least one semester)
  • some pictures of you with children (at least 6)
  • medical certificate
  • Au Pair agreement
  • two Au Pair-contracts (signed)
  • Copy of passport



Some tipps for your application

Be aware that the application shows who you are.

The more comprehensive your application is, the better the host families can picture you up.

The more flexible you are in your requests, the more host families will be interested in you of being their Au Pair.
