How important is the Language Au Pair Contract?

Very important. When a family is ready to confirm a stay with a Language Au Pair, both parties complete a Language Au Pair Contract online together.  The Contract covers all of the important information and commitments that you have discussed and agreed. The Lingoo Language Au Pair Contract is based on the model agreement approved by the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe relating to an Au pair placement. 

The Contract is a safety tool that clarifies the agreement between the family and the au pair and provides security for the stay. It can also be used to prove the stay took place for insurance reasons and is highly important for non-EU citizens who may need to present this document to pass through border controls.
