Most asked questions about becoming an au pair in Spain

What are the rules to become an au pair in Spain?
  • You are between 17-30 years old;
  • You are unmarried and have no children;
  • You have enough money to pay for your trip;
  • You have valid health insurance for the duration of your stay in Spain;
  • You speak Spanish and want to improve your language skills;
  • Your native language doesn’t have to be Spanish.
Do you need to speak Spanish in order to become an au pair in Spain?

No, but every au pair in Spain has to attend a Spanish course for at least 20 hours per week to obtain the au pair visa or student visa. Au pairs applying for a student visa must attend the language course at one of the schools recognized by the Instituto Cervantes.

What do you earn as an au pair in Spain?

As an au pair you live with your host family and you are entitled to a minimum of €70 per month in pocket money. You get board and lodging for free. There is no official regulation for the number of hours you work as an au pair in Spain. A working week of 30 hours is often assumed, this includes babysitting work.

What are your au pair responsibilities?

The work of an au pair in Spain 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 30 hours a week. The rest of the time you can explore the country, hang out with friends or meet the perfect Spanish lover! 

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

An au pair is entitled to at least 1 day off per week and at least once a month. This day must be a Sunday. There are no official agreements regarding au pair leave. You should discuss this with your host family in advance. We recommend that if you stay in Spain as an au pair for 12 months, you are entitled to at least 4 weeks of leave.

Do you need to register as an au pair in Spain?

Yes. It is very important that when an au pair stays in Spain for more than 3 months, he or she registers in the population register. The au pair informs the local registration office about his or her stay with the host family.

Help is often requested from the host family, because these formalities differ per province. The next step in this process is to apply for the EU registration certificate. When you stay as an au pair in Spain for more than 3 months, you must request an EU registration certificate from the Foreigners Registration Office. Here too, the formalities differ per autonomous region and province.

What do you need to provide in order to apply for an EU registration?
  • The official application form (EX – 18) in duplicate;
  • A valid passport or ID;
  • Proof of health insurance;
  • Proof, for example an au pair contract, which indicates that as an au pair you have sufficient means to pay for your stay in Spain;
  • We also recommend bringing a copy of the European Agreement on Au Pair Employment in Spanish with you.

It is recommended to provide the required documents in Spanish or one of the other officially recognized languages.
