Pre-Settled Status for Au Pairs

Once the UK leaves the EU in December 2020  at the end of the transition period there is currently no visa available for EU candidates to come to the UK as Au Pair.    Despite intensive lobbying the government have decided to refuse entry to this category.Should you wish to host an au pair in 2021 it is essential that he/she arrives in the UK before the end of December so that he/she may make application for pre-settled status and thus be able to remain here into 2021.  The deadline for applying is 30 June 2021 but the au pair candidate must arrive in the UK before 31st December 2020Despite the difficulties caused by lockdown and self-isolation on arrival our au pairs provide valuable flexible childcare to our welcoming host families and become a big brother/sister to the children.
