However, Amway Business Owners will need to comply with local business and tax requirements as outlined in company literature, which includes a restriction on product retailing within the specific country of business registration.

Sponsoring
Amway Business Owners operating in any of the four countries in the Scandinavian region will be able to personally sponsor both Amway Business Owners and Members in any of these countries. In Sweden, to become an ABO, you have to have a Swedish CPR-number (which you can get from the Swedish Tax Authorities), a Swedish address and a Swedish bank account (this is not needed when becoming a Marketing Advisor).

If the new ABO has all the requirements met above, sponsoring can be completed via Amway Online; www.amway.se. You find all necessary information when you log in to Amway Online.

Online registration is possible in Sweden via www.amway.se. Note! You have to have a Swedish CPR number (ID number), a Swedish address and a Swedish bank account to become an ABO in Sweden. If you do not, we recommend you contact Amway Denmark, Finland or Norway for their requirements to become an ABO in any of those countries.
Amway Scandinavia (Finland, Norway, Denmark, Sweden) is one market (Consolidated Line of Sponsorship = CLOS).

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 who plan to have an active Amway business in Scandinavia must comply with the laws of doing business in the region. Foreigners may establish an Amway business in Sweden either as an individual or by forming a legal entity, such as a corporation or partnership.

Available methods of doing business
- Sole proprietorship
- Partnership
- Branch
- Private or Public Limited Company

A Swedish ID/CPR number, a local bank account and a local address are required. However, additional business and tax registration requirements vary depending on which method of operating your business you choose and which country you choose to operate in.

Please consult your legal and tax advisors for specific formation requirements and information on which form of legal entity would be most advisable for you.

U.S., Canadian and European Union country citizens do not need a visa to enter Sweden if their stay is less than 90 days. However, they must hold a valid passport. The passport union holds minimal border formalities between the Nordic countries but passports must always be carried.
