If you are not european and want to be an Au pair in Spain longer than 3 months then you need to apply for an Au Pair or Student Visa. Right now due to COVID-19, it is only possible to come to Spain with a Student Visa due to travel restrictions.

In normal conditions with no pandemic, non european au pairs can entry in Spain as a tourist and then, once in Spain, they can apply for a student visa as it is not necessary to go back to their home country. But now due to travel restrictions, unless you are a resident in Schengen area, you need to apply for the student visa in your home country.

You can learn about the requirements to get a student visa, the process and documents required in this link.

To get a Student Visa in Spain, these are the main costs involved more or less:

  1. You need to register in a Spanish language school. Costs of Spanish language schools: 295€ approx monthly
  2. Have enough financial means to afford expenses of your stay and return to your country, which is around 550€ per month approx. unless it is duly proven that the accommodation has been paid in advance for the entire duration of the stay. As you will live with a host family as an au pair, normally schools includes in the school certificate the information regarding your lodging with a host family, so maybe (if officer approves and accepts) it is not necessary to show financial means in your bank statement.
  3. Have a public or private health insurance arranged with an insurance company authorized to operate in Spain. Average cost of 43€ monthly depending on your age. detailed information here. 
  4. Cost of visa fee: in Spain it is around 12€ in your home country you need to ask your Spanish consulate.
