Notice to Prospective Danish Host Families and Au Pairs

Notice to Prospective Danish Host Families and Au Pairs

In view of the recent changes to the Danish Au Pair System and pending further advice from Manila, the Philippine Embassy and the Honorary Consulate General of the Philippines in Copenhagen shall continue to accept Danish au pair contracts for authentication provided that:

  1. said contract submitted is the old one issued by the Danish Ministry for Refugees, Immigration & Integration Affairs in 2010 incorporating the provisions requested by the Philippines (i.e. insurance requirements);
  2. duties specified cover child care and light household chores; and
  3. that the host families applying for an au pair fall under the previous definition of host families, which do not yet include pensioners or retired couples.

Thank you.
