Au pair: New rates for the daily allowance (pocket money) and amount to help finance Danish language classes take effect on 1 January 2018

For applications submitted on 1 January 2018 and onwards the rate for the monthly allowance (pocket money) is expected to be DKK 4,250 and the amount to help finance Danish language classes is expected to be DKK 5,275.

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

The submission date is the date where 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 when you begin to complete the application form or sign the application. If the application process, for instance, is begun in December 2017, but the application only submitted in January 2018, the rates for 2018 will be in effect.
