Foreigners residing in the Netherlands on a basis of a residence permit to stay as an au-pair are allowed to work for a maximum of 30 hours per week in the host family. Research conducted on this program showed that au pairs worked for a longer period. As of 1 July 2015 the Au-Pair Immigration Program will be amended, so that au pairs are only allowed to work for 20 hours per week and only 4 hours per 12 hours in stead 8 hours. Labour Inspection and Immigration Service will intensify control. Non complaince will result in fines imposed to the host family.
