About

As an au pair, you can be granted a residence permit valid for a maximum of 1 year with the possibility of extension for a maximum of one additional year.

In addition, the residence permit is limited to the validity period of the au pair contract or to the day when the youngest child in the family turns 18.

If you change your host family, then the previous au pair period will be subtracted from the new permit duration. You can only have permits for a total of 2 years, which is the maximum for an au pair.

The permit can be given 2 months before the expiry date of your passport. Such 'passport shortening' can be appealed to at the Ministry of Immigration and Integration.
