If asked what they would pay to visit a foreign country, most people will think of large sums of money. However, there are incredibly cheap ways to do this.
Considering to work as an au pair is an extremely fun and easy way to go abroad for extended periods of time. An individual considering this position will essentially be hired by a family that needs both a full time babysitter, as well as a full time maid. Those who will choose to work like this will have the option to move in with a family and be treated as a family member would.
In terms of monetary support, the family will pay a weekly allowance that can be used however the chosen individual sees fit.
An opportunity of young people
If you are in your late teens or twenties, then you too can benefit from this work and travel opportunity. Most families tend to favor younger people as they have more energy to take care of various chores. Also, if you know a foreign language other than English, such as French, or German, then you’ll be much more likely to be selected by families who are also looking for a language teacher for their children.
Most agencies will help you get where you want to go, however, the duration of a contract is decided by the laws of the country you choose. Regardless of the desires of the family, or the employee, most countries only allow a foreign individual to work for a few months at a time, after which new sets of papers are required.
