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.

Establishment of a No 2 business involves complex business and legal issues. Amway Business Owners should always contact the affiliate and obtain the advice of a local attorney before attempting to establish a No. 2 business.

Business Entities
Amway Business Owners may establish a No. 2 business in Spain. The most common forms of businesses are: Sole Proprietorship, Partnership and Limited Liability Company. You should consult with a local attorney to identify the best business entity to accomplish your business goals. If you wish to operate in a form other than Sole Proprietorship, you should contact the affiliate to discuss Amway’s policy concerning the formation of the business entity.

Visa Requirements
Any foreign citizen (EEC national) residing and working in Spain must obtain a Residence CARD. Any foreign citizen (non-EEC nation) residing or working in Spain must obtain a Residence and Work Permit. A permit to conduct Amway Business Owner activities is required, as well as a NIE (Foreigner’s Identification Number) at the local Police Department in the District in which the foreigner has residence. The Spanish Consulate in your country of residence should be contacted in advance to obtain a general idea of the appropriate immigration requirements for your business purposes. Laws relating to visa requirements are constantly changing. Amway Business Owners must consult experts in the country to obtain advice on the appropriate immigration requirements. Consulting an expert is also important, if you do not intend to reside there.
