As an au pair, you can improve your language skills and learn about Norwegian society by living with a Norwegian family. In return, you will provide services such as light housework and/or child care for the host family.
The applicant is the person who wishes to visit or live in Norway.
The government platform states that the new government will phase out the au-pair scheme. We do not have more information about this yet.
If you have been granted an au-pair permit, you cannot travel to Norway now due to corona restrictions. UDI does not process au pair applications now because of this. We do not know how long this will last. We recommend both applicants and host families to follow the information pages about the corona situation. We update the information here when we start processing applications again.
