Application for a residence permit for an au pair exchange

At Super Nanny Au Pair Services, we can arrange a visa application (MVV/VVR) within 10 working days. An au pair from outside the European Union must have an entry visa (provisional residence permit, MVV) in order to enter the Netherlands and eventually be allowed to stay in the Netherlands for one year with a valid residence permit.

The residence permit (VVR) is immediately linked to the MVV application. We have a choice when submitting the application for an au pair exchange.

  1. Date of entry known
  2. Date of entry unknown
  • If the date of entry is known, we fill in the date of entry. The au pair may travel to the Netherlands before that date (the date you have provided) with her MVV sticker in her passport, but she will not yet be allowed to work as an au pair.
  • If the date of entry is unknown, we will not fill in a date in the digital application, and the au pair’s one-year permit will be valid from the date on which her MVV is issued by the Dutch embassy in the country of origin.

My advice is to provide an entry date, taking into account a period of 4-6 weeks* if we submit the application. *For au pairs from the Philippines, an application always takes longer as applicants are required to attend a CFO seminar once their MVV has been issued.

Au pair from the EU

Au pairs from countries not requiring a MVV do not require an entry visa (MVV), but must apply for a residence permit (VVR) upon arrival in order to reside in the Netherlands for one year. What does this entail for you before we can submit your application for an au pair exchange with the Immigration and Naturalisation Service? Step by step

  • Guidance for host family in gathering the required documents for the application for an au pair exchange
  • Checking of the documents submitted by the host family to Super Nanny Au Pair Services
  • Checking of the application form for au pair exchange
  • Digital submission of application (MVV/VVR) to the Immigration and Naturalisation Service
  • Support for the au pair in the country of origin
  • Support for the au pair and/or agent after arrival in the Netherlands*
  • Correct deregistration of the au pair with the Immigration and Naturalisation Service after her year as an au pair. This must take place within 28 days after the host family has informed Super Nanny Au Pair Services of her departure. As a result, the sponsorship declaration you have signed no longer applies.
