Further information: List of countries in the North Vision Song Contest

Countries that are active members of the North Broadcasting Union (NBU) are also eligible to participate in the North Vision Song Contest. As in every edition, an invitation to all the members have been sent in order to confirm whether they will participate or not. The following list of countries declined stating their reasons as shown below.

Active NBU members

  • Flag of Iceland Iceland: After withdrawing for the North Vision Song Contest 21, the country stated that a return this edition is very likely. However, on January 28, 2017, RÚV announced that it will not return, due to ongoing financial issues.
  • Flag of Ireland Ireland: It was announced 18 September 2016 that Ireland would be withdrawing from the North Vision Song Contest 21. A return in the future seems unlikely, but is not ruled out.
  • Flag of Luxembourg Luxembourg: On 29 January 2017, RTL announced that Luxembourg would not be competing in the twenty-second edition due to budget costs.
  • Flag of Monaco Monaco: Monaco hasn't participated in the contest since the seventeenth edition. The specific reason behind the withdrawal has never been confirmed. However, the country has always stated that a return in a future edition isn't ruled out, meaning that Monaco might return this edition.
  • Flag of Slovenia Slovenia: Slovenia was also one of the countries that withdrew from the Northvision Song Contest 21. A return in this or a future edition is uncertain.

Associate members

  • Flag of Hong Kong Hong Kong: It's currently unknown whether Hong Kong will participate or not, as it has been confirmed that the country can only return for this edition if they will finish in the top 6 in the twenty-first edition, and subsequently participate as part of the Big 6 this edition, similar to last edition. As the country hasn't finished in the top 6 of last edition, it's unlikely that the country will keep its participation.
