Usually, the au pair agency will help you fill out the application form. If your au pair stay requires a visa, it can be especially helpful to hire an au pair agency to help you with the formalities. This service is obviously not for free, as the agency is interested in making a profit.
Therefore, both you and your future host family have to pay the agency a fee for its service. As an au pair, you only have to pay the fee after the agency finds a suitable family for you. The agency fee may vary a lot.
From our perspective, it is also possible to find a good host family through the internet .
As host mom I have had better experiences finding au pairs through the internet than through the three agencies I payed.
Also, if you are an au pair looking for a family on your own you have more control over the entire process that way.
Furthermore, looking for a host family online is free for you as an au pair. Trust your good feeling! If you organize your search for a host family well, you fill find a family very fast.
