Procedures for Au Pair Application (Norway & Denmark)
1.) The host family downloads the contract from UDI (if from Norway) / New to Denmark (if from Denmark) website and signs it.
2.) The host family brings the signed contract to the Philippine Embassy for attestation. He/she is requested to present a valid identification (ID) card or copy of passport.
3.) The host family sends the attested contract to the au pair for her to sign and submit to the Norwegian Embassy in Manila (Note: The Norwegian Embassy in Manila also processes visa applications for those in the Philippines wishing to travel to Denmark)
4.) The Norwegian Embassy processes the application
5.) Once the application is approved and the visa is obtained, the au pair obtains an Overseas Employment Certificate (OEC) from the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) after submitting the following to the latter:
a. Au pair contract signed by the au pair and the head of the host family duly authenticated by the Philippine Embassy in Norway which has concurrent jurisdiction over Denmark,
b. Copy of passport with the stamped valid au pair visa
c. Pre Departure Orientation Seminar (PDOS) certificate issued by the Overseas Welfare Administration (OWWA)
d. Valid “fit for work” medical examination result
Important Notes for Host Families:
1.) To avoid sending the contract back and forth, please bring the contract to the Philippine Embassy first before sending it to the au pair. The Embassy only needs to attest the identity of the host family and not the au pair’s.
2.) Host families who are from places far from Oslo may send the contract by mail accompanied by a copy of the host family’s identification (ID) card and/or passport data page bearing a similar signature to that affixed in the contract. An authentication fee of 197.50 NOK may be paid through the Embassy’s bank account, DnB NOR Account No. 5083.05.14756 with IBAN NO4950830514756 and SWIFT CODE DNBANOKKXXX. If they wish the Embassy to send the contract to them by mail, an additional 150 NOK (for those in Norway) / 200 NOK (for those in Denmark) will be needed to cover the cost of postage.
3.) Please note that host families who choose to transact business with au pair agencies should do so on their own responsibility. The Embassy and the Philippine government has not authorized any agency to recruit au pairs in its behalf.
