Due to its strong economy and growing number of high-income-earning families, China is emerging as a popular au pair destination.

Requirements for working as an au pair in China

To be an au pair in China, you have to be between the ages of 18 and 29 years old and single with no kids. Minimum education requirements are a high school diploma. No Chinese language knowledge is required, as au pairs in China speak English with their host families (unless of course they want to learn Chinese, and they will be placed with a family who will speak Chinese with them).

Au pairs usually have to cover their own travel expenses to China, and the length of stay as an au pair in China can either be 6 or 12 months.

Pay and benefits

Monthly pay for au pairs in China is approximately (or 60 Euros). This is not a lot of money, but China is a very inexpensive country, so you can get by on this.

Those are the basics about working as an au pair in China. Our next post will share the personal experience of one of our readers, who is currently an au pair in China. Stay tuned
