Au Pair Network

From July 1st, 2019 host families will have to pay a higher fee to employ new au pairs.

Changes to the law regarding the au pair scheme (proposal L 133) was recently voted through in the Danish Parliament. From July 1st, 2019 the state will no longer cover any expenses of offering Danish lessons for au pairs. Instead this expense is to be covered by the host families. This means that for host families it will be more than three times as expensive to get an au pair.

Host families will only have to pay the new fee once and the law changes does NOT apply to existing residence permits. This means that if you are changing host family, your host family will have to pay a smaller amount for your Danish lessons.

The increased fee is to be paid by your host family no matter if you attend Danish lessons or not. All au pairs can still attend Danish lessons without any charge, and we encourage all of you to do so!

We are getting questions about paid travel fare.

As a general rule your host family must pay for your plane tickets to and from Denmark if you are travelling from and returning to a country outside of the EU/EEA or Switzerland. These are the rules in force for all au pairs that are currently staying in Denmark.

However, you will need to meet some deadlines in order to keep your right to paid return fare. The deadlines are described in your contract and on www.newtodenmark.dk ... See MoreSee Less
