Hosting an au pair in Belgium

Lovely people, beautiful cities and the finest beers. No wonder our au pairs love to visit your country!
Aside from the obvious benefits of hosting an au pair, it can also be pretty stressful. What about your privacy? We have experienced that you don't have to worry about that at all. Au pairs love to go on adventures, they are adventurous types! Especially in a beautiful country like Belgium, who wouldn't want to make memories, experience the wonderful history and get to know the warm & welcoming culture that Belgium is known for?

What are the rules for au pairs in Belgium?

As an au pair:

  • 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).

How much do I have to pay the au pair?

An au pair is entitled to board, lodging and pocket money. In Belgium the minimum pocket money is €450 per month. In addition to board, lodging and pocket money, an au pair is also entitled to at least two days off per week.

In addition, if an au pair stays with the family for a year, she is entitled to two weeks of paid vacation. To ensure that the au pair does not exceed the maximum number of working hours of 20 hours, it is important to make a work schedule. This contains the hours that the au pair works for your family.

What kind of au pairs do we select? We choose our au pairs very carefully. They need to be reliable, sparkly people who really love and adore children. Our au pairs are mature and independent, just someone you would love to have around your family. Fun fact: We used to all be au pairs before, so we know exactly what it entails. Our screening process is pretty strict, so only the best of the best get through. Together we guide you and your au pair in every step, so you don’t have to worry about a thing.
