French citizens enjoy a high standard of living, and France performs well in international rankings of education and health care. Like Germany, you need to have the basics of the French language in order to apply for this programme. France has many attractions such as Arc de Triomphe, the Mona Lisa in the Louvre, the French Riviera, Eiffel tower and many more. It is the most visited country in Europe by foreigners.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_accordion collapsible=”yes”][vc_accordion_tab title=”Programme requirements”][vc_column_text]

Upon receiving all of the necessary documentation, your file will be sent to our placement partner abroad which will then be reviewed within 24 hours. The matching process with a host family then begins. Once your dedicated au pair consultant has received information from our placement partner about a potential host family, you will be notified immediately so that you are prepared for your telephone call from the host family. Having accepted your host family, your next step will be the visa application and upon approval you will be on your way.[/vc_column_text][/vc_accordion_tab][vc_accordion_tab title=”Cost involved”][vc_column_text]
