 Date: 07.02.24

From 1st of March 2024 the host family must give the au pair a minimum of 7.000 NOK per month as pocket money/salary (before taxes).

In addition, the host family must pay a minimum of 10.550 NOK per year (880 NOK per month) for the au pair’s Norwegian language course and study materials.
