Au pair: New rates for the daily allowance (pocket money) and amount to help finance Danish language classes take effect on 1 January 2019

For applications submitted on 1 January 2019 and onwards the rate for the monthly allowance (pocket money) is expected to be DKK 4,350 and the amount to help finance Danish language classes is expected to be DKK 5,380.

The application’s submission date determines which rate applies to your application.

The submission date is the date when the application has been

  • received at a diplomatic mission or application centre
  • received at a police station or in SIRI’s Citizen Centre
  • received by SIRI as physical post or email
  • submitted online

The submission date is therefore independent of the date you begin to complete the application form or sign the application. If the application process, for instance, has been begun in December 2018, but the application only submitted in January 2019, the rates for 2019 will be in effect.
