Our Frequently Asked Questions

Here are all the answers to our frequently asked questions about our babysitting service!

Can I stay in the Netherlands after my au pair year?

Your au pair residence permit is valid for one year only and can’t be extended. If you want to stay in the Netherlands when the permit ends, you have to make an application for a new residence permit with a new purpose of stay. The IND will assess you to see if you meet the conditions.

Can I deduct the babysitting costs from the tax as a self-employed person or entrepreneur?

At Nanny Nina you can easily download an invoice for the hours worked and the payment for the babysitter. The VAT can be deducted from the turnover tax (VAT tax). You can deduct the expenses for your nanny if these are made for business purposes from your income tax, so that you have more left over! You can easily download the invoice under “payments”.

What is an MVV and VVR for au pairs?

Provisional residence permit (MVV)

If you want to live in the Netherlands for longer than 90 days, you must apply for a residence permit. A condition for this is a long-stay visa (MVV). With this special visa you can travel to the Netherlands. You apply for the long-stay visa and the residence permit (VVR) together.

Regular residence permit (VVR)

To start the visa application, Nanny Nina will start a TEV procedure that consists of the application for a long-stay visa and/or VRR. The residence permit is valid for 12 months and cannot be extended.

You have 3 months to collect the long-stay visa from the Dutch representation that Nanny Nina has filled in on the application form. To do this, make an appointment at the representation and bring your passport and 1 new passport photo with you. Please note: your passport must be valid for at least 6 months on the day the representation places the long-stay visa in it.

Does my au pair need a visa?

Au pairs from the European Union, Switzerland, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and America do not need a visa in advance to travel to the Netherlands. Au pairs from outside the European Union must apply for a residence permit.

Visa Required Au Pair

This is an au pair who is not from the countries listed above and who needs a visa to travel to the Netherlands before leaving their home country. After this, the au pair must apply for a residence permit. Usually a visa-required Au Pair can arrive within 2 months after placement, this depends on whether all papers are submitted correctly and on time.

How and when do I book the flight ticket for my au pair?

It’s the cheapest to book a return flight ticket but you can’t always book the flight back as it’s a year away. A solution would be to book already and change the data of the return flight later. Or to book just a one-way ticket.
