Frequently asked questions
How many hours a week can an Au Pair work ?
Every host country has different adjustments in terms of working hours for the Au Pair. They could go from a minimum of 20 to 50 hours a week. In Turkey in most cases you have your Sunday completely free and ''work'' around 45 hours a week.
How much does it cost to become an Au Pair?
How much it costs to become an Au Pair in Turkey depends on many factors. The agency you will apply might ask Au Pairs / Nannies or the Families so many fees. There is no extra fees and costs with us. Except the Au Pair or Family needs to cover the costs for visa / residence permit and flight tickets. If you are already in Turkey as a legal resident, then there is no extra cost for you.
What is the cost of hiring an Au-Pair ?
The costs of hiring an Au Pair associate with different factors, some of which are compulsory (pocket money, food and accommodation) and others optional (language course, insurance and transportation). The pocket money differs between 500-900$ per month and depends on the host country’s regulations. Turkey has an average pocket money (salary) of 500$ per month for an Au-Pair. The families give you the accomodation and delicious Turkish food as well.
What is the difference between a Nanny and an Au-Pair ?
An Au Pair is defined as a young person (between the ages of 18-35), who goes abroad to live with a native family and learn a language, country's culture in exchange for childcare. Meanwhile, a nanny does not take part in any cultural exchange and gets a salary as in any other job. There is no age limit for becoming a nanny but we prefer not above 50. You should exactly know what you are looking for as a host family.

Do I need a visa to come to Turkey ?
It totally depends on your nationality. If you let us know about your nationality we will let you know about the answer. For many nationalities there is no obligation to have a visa to come to Turkey for 3 months or less. After a succesful match, many of our Au-Pairs come to Turkey without a visa and later on we apply for a residence permit together so that they can stay for one year with no problem. We assist for your residence permit as well as visa.
