Entry ban for au pairs from most third countries

Au pair means cultural exchange with a family connection

An au pair stay is a real win-win situation for both sides. Au pairs support families with childcare for up to six hours a day and play a key role in ensuring that parents can flexibly combine family and work. You will have the unique opportunity to get to know the German language and the culture of the country while living with a host family and thus to expand your general education.

No entry for au pairs from third countries

Over 15,000 young people from all over the world take part in the au pair program in Germany every year. The majority of them come from third countries. But since the outbreak of the corona pandemic in March, almost no au pairs can be found unless they come from the EU or Georgia. In almost all third countries, the German consulates are currently working very limited, and au pairs are not part of the group that is currently approved for visa applications.
