1. The most common problems concerning health insurance for foreign au pairs in Germany or Austria

1.1. Au pair visa application at the embassy/ consulate

For au pairs required to have a visa, purchasing health insurance is one of the most important requirements for obtaining a valid visa at the embassy. Without health insurance there will be no visa.

1.2. Au pair travel insurance must meet certain requirements by the embassy

Not all au pair travel insurances are accepted at the embassies abroad. Only health insurances that meet the requirements for a Schengen Visa by the European Union Council are recognized at the immigration office or at the German Embassy.

1.3. High medical and hospital costs

Foreign au pairs need health insurance for their stay in Germany, even from a purely financial standpoint. Anyone staying in Germany or Austria without health insurance must, in case of illness, carry all costs themselves. However, costs of doctor's visits, medications and hospital stays in Germany or Austria are immensely high. Without adequate insurance, the financial burden is extremely high for young au pairs, their host families or their parents. In the worst case, they could even face financial ruin if they cannot carry the costs for necessary treatments.
