Consolidated Line of Sponsorship (CLOS)
Thirteen Eastern European Amway markets: Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Turkey and Ukraine, are combined into a Consolidated Line of Sponsorship (CLOS) Region. This will allow all current and new ABOs, AIEs and Members Plus to personally sponsor within and into each of these countries. Option of international sponsoring between the countries within CLOS Region is discontinued. (All businesses established before August 31, 2003 will continue to count according to international sponsoring rules.) International sponsoring from outside the CLOS Region continues to be available. If an ABO has no business in any of the countries that make up the CLOS Region, he will be allowed to establish one new business in the CLOS Region. An ABO, AIE or Member Plus who already has at least one business in the CLOS region will not be allowed to establish another one.

Establish a Second Business

International Sponsoring
International sponsoring is always an option and an excellent means of expanding your business while avoiding many of the costs and complexities associated with establishing a second business. Please note: For those markets where foreigners are able to establish a second business, they must be the international sponsor of their second business in another country.

Foreign Amway Business Owners may establish a second business in Romania. The cost for a foreigner to establish a business in Romania is relatively inexpensive but does take time and effort.

Foreigners may establish an Amway business in Romania by completing the legal requirements to form a legal entity such as a limited liability company (SRL). A resident permit and local address are required.

Amway Business Owners who intend to distribute Business Support Materials must establish a separate legal entity for that purpose.

If you are unable to obtain such registrations, you will be classified as a Member Plus.
