Au pair of EEA countries: citizens of these countries are entitled to NHS services throughout their stay in the UK. To do so, however, the au pair must present her European Health Insurance Card (EHIC). Otherwise, they may be charged for health care in the UK. An au pair is entitled to 2 days off per week. One of these days should be at least once a month on a Sunday. Citizens of countries that have a mutual health agreement with the UK are entitled to hospital care.

In addition to the contract, au pairs outside the EU need a letter of invitation from their host families.
In Spain, the Directorate General of the Police issues the letter of invitation. As a result, host families must apply for the form from their local police department. After receipt, they must send the letter with the contract to their future au pair so that boys or girls can present the documents to the Spanish Embassy and apply for their visa. In anticipation of the au pair stay, the host family and the au pair should talk about their specific wishes and expectations. The detailed agreements that will be concluded during these discussions should always be incorporated into a written contract. The standard contract provided by the Council of Europe can be used for this purpose Unfortunately, there is no official au pair contract for Australia. Therefore, we recommend that you download the official European au pair contract and modify it to suit your needs. Contract termination The legal notice is 14 days. This should provide sufficient time for both parties to make other arrangements, to find another au pair or host family, or to return home. Au pairs should have the opportunity to take an English course. Usually, au pairs pay for the cost of these courses themselves.
The host family should help find, as far as possible, an appropriate course on its territory. In addition, insurance and liability issues must be resolved in advance.
