Brexit Deal or no Deal

 Our advice regarding Au Pairs and Brexit Deal or no Deal

Brexit is still causing confusion and we have been doing our best to get advice from the Government to clarify the situation of Au Pairs in a deal or no deal scenario

Please do not worry – we have been in contact with the Home office, MP’s, government ministers and the Migration Advisory committee and all our research leads us to believe that European Au pairs will continue to be welcome in the UK whether we have a deal or not.  

It appears there may be some form of registration required post 29 March 2019 but nothing is actually set in stone at this stage and we will update you when we receive further information.

Please refer to the various government links below that lead BAPAA to the conclusion that Au pairs will continue to be welcome in the UK whether we have a deal or not.

 If there is a no deal, Au Pairs who arrive in the UK after the 29 March 2019 will have 3 months to apply for European Temporary leave to remain and to stay here for up 3 years

Please do be aware that the information being given to us is subject to change and we will update you when we have more specific guidance.

We do advise that if your current Au pair is going home for a holiday and is due to travel back to the UK on or after 29 March 2019 they should take a copy of their original letter of invitation and also make sure they have all of your family contact details and the contact of your UK Au Pair Agency in case of any queries raised when they try to return. 

(Please note that European ID cards will be accepted by the UK until 31 December 2020 whether there is a deal or not.  Click her for the link for clarification )
