Necessary (travel) documents and certificates

To finish your application, you will need the following documents and certificates (please obtain these AFTER you have done the interview by Complete Au Pair and are allowed to proceed with your application):

  • Birth Certificate, with a Red Ribbon
  • Certificate of No Marriage Record (CENOMAR) which is less than 3 months old, with a red Ribbon
  • Passport which is valid for at least 1 more year, which you will renew in time if it will expire

If you are applying to us directly (meaning that your host family didn’t already find you before you applied to us), you will also need these 4 documents below. In case your host family found you, these documents may still be required (depending on the preference of the host family)

  • At least one decent, recent picture of the au pair, which can be shown to the host family. The background should be looking fine as well. If possible, more pictures are preferred (in example together with a young child, so the host families with children can actually see that the au pair is used to having children around). Please also include a letter with your motivation which we can send to the host family.
  • Certificate of graduating high school
  • Medical Certificate which states that I am healthy, not known to have any infectious illness, psychological problems and am not pregnant, am able to become an au pair abroad, maximum 3 months old
  • NBI Clearance which states that I do not have a criminal record. Maximum 3 months old
