These players will have the same rights and obligations as the players from their new Federation of Origin. However, players who have represented their previous Federation of Origin in international competitions will have to complete a two year waiting period, before being eligible for selection by their new federation.
This waiting period officially begins at the time of the filing with the FIVB of the complete request to change Federation of Origin.
