Most asked questions about becoming an au pair in Belgium

What are the rules to become an au pair in Belgium?
  • You are between 18 and 25 years old (up to 30 years old for EU citizens).
  • You are unmarried and have no children.
  • You have never had a work permit before in Belgium.
  • You have a basic knowledge of either Dutch, French or German (depending on the region where you want to go).
  • You have a school-leaving qualification which allows you to attend university or can you prove that you attended school up to the age of 17.
  • You can cover the expenses of your au pair stay and your return trip.
Do you need to speak the language in order to become an au pair in Belgium?

No, but Au pairs from non-EU countries have to attend a language course during their stay. In Belgium they speak French, Flemish or Dutch, so depending on the region you stay in, you will take part in a language course spoken in that region.

The course has to be offered by an officially recognised institution. The host family will also prepare a cultural program, so the au pair can learn more about Belgian culture.

What do you earn as an au pair in Belgium?

Belgium au pairs get a minimum of 450 euros pocket money per month, which must be paid into the au pair’s bank account. So au pairs should open a personal bank account immediately after their arrival. Au pairs get the full amount of monthly pocket money in case of illness and also during holidays.

What are your au pair responsibilities?

The work of an au pair in Belgium mainly consists of taking care of the children, but can be supported by household tasks such as vacuuming, loading the dishwasher and doing laundry. This is about 20 hours a week. The rest of the time you can explore the country, hang out with friends or meet the perfect Belgium lover! 

How many days off do you have as an au pair?

Au pairs in Belgium are entitled to at least one day off per week. You can decide together with your host family what day this is.

What are the rules regarding holidays or public holidays for au pairs?

There are no rules regarding holidays for au pairs in Belgium, but we recommend that an au pair who works for 12 months, gets a minimum of 2 weeks paid holiday.

There are also no official regulations regarding public holidays for au pairs. We do recommend that au pairs have a day off on public holidays, so they can experience the Belgium culture fully.
