Au pair: New rates for monthly allowance, and for amount to help finance Danish language classes, will come into effect on 1 January 2024

The new rate for the monthly allowance (pocket money) is expected to be DKK 4,850, and the new rate for the amount that helps finance Danish language classes is expected to be DKK 19,305.

The new rates apply to au pair applications that are submitted 1 January 2024 and onwards.

Your application’s submission date determines what type of rate applies to your application.

The submission date is the date when the application has been

  • received at a diplomatic mission or at a visa application centre
  • received at one of SIRI’s branch offices
  • received by SIRI as physical mail or via SIRI’s contact form
  • submitted by using the online application form AU1

This means that the submission date is not dependent of when you begin to fill out the application form, or when the application is signed by the applicant. For instance, if the application process begins in December 2023, but the application itself is not submitted until January 2024, it is the rates for 2024 that apply to your application. 

The rates will be updated on the application page on 1 January 2024
