The purpose of staying in the country as an au pair is that the foreigner lives with a family, which includes children under 18, on equal terms with the family members. By doing so the foreigner has an opportunity to improve his/her language skills, special skills and widen his/her cultural horizon.

In return au pairs must take part in the family´s household chores max. 5 hours per day, 6 days a week at the most.
