IMPORTANT ADVICE TO CONSIDER BEFORE
BECOMING AN AU PAIR


You should protect yourself and always use an established au pair agency.  
We advise that you register with a local agency in your home country so that they can advise you about the programme and help you to provide all the required documentation. 

We work with reputable partner agencies in countries all over Europe - do contact us and we are very happy to  recommend a good agency close to where you live. 
If you are not resident in the UK already and register on our site we will ask one of our partner agencies to contact you directly to give you more information.
 
Do E-mail us at info@a2zaupairs.com and we can put you in touch with one of our highly recommended partners in your home country.

Working in the UK
Non EEA Nationals who have an Au Pair visa

If you are here as an Au Pair then you are not allowed to undertake taxable employment. Your visa does not allow it.

Working in the UK – EEA Nationals

Quote from immigration and Nationality directorate May 2004
"Those au pairs already in the UK who wish to continue current placements without changing their working arrangements do not need to register, providing they do not take up additional employment. However, should they choose to alter their au pair arrangement and enter into a more formal employment arrangement with the host family, e.g. by increasing their hours, duties or pay, then they will need to register under the scheme. If they choose to take work in addition to their au pair placement they should obtain a registration certificate for both the au pair placement and for the additional work. Further information about how to register and application forms are available at www.workingintheuk.gov.uk."
