Au Pair Information For ItalyHome > Au Pair Hosting Countries > Italy
For an au pair that comes from outside of the EU, the following documentation is needed to obtain a long stay visa:
a certificate of enrolment (plus receipt of payment) at any Italian School or College where the Au pair-to-be will be attending a course of Italian language. This school or College must be legally acknowledged
("legalmente riconosciuto") and the above mentioned certificate must be stamped by the local police. The visa will be issued for the length of time of the enrollment in school.
a return air ticket.
"travel assistance" insurance and medical insurance
a written statement of support signed by the host family which must be stamped by the local police.
a written agreement between the Au pair-to-be and the host family (which should specify the duration of stay, salary, study benefits, etc). The above must be stamped by the "Ufficio Provinciale del Lavoro", together with a permit issued by the local police. In some areas it is sufficient to just have this stamped by the local police.
The Au pair Visa will be granted for study purposes. We have not experienced any age restriction on this visa, however it would be better to stay within the guidelines of 18 � 30.
