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.

Active NBU members

  • Flag of Cyprus.png Cyprus: CyBC announced their withdrawal from the contest due to the departure of the old delegation of the country. The broadcaster went on to state that they fully intend to return in the twenty-eighth edition.
  • Flag of Finland.png Finland: Yle announced their withdrawal from the contest, citing internal issues as the reason. As a result, the Head of Delegation resigned from his position. A return is highly likely in the 28th edition with a new Head of Delegation.
  • Flag of Liechtenstein.png Liechtenstein: Despite selecting Parov Stelar (feat. Anduze) with their song "Beauty Mark" to represent the country, Liechtenstein was forced to withdraw before the Semi Finals started after their Head of Delegation was sanctioned by the NBU for being part of a not nearer disclosed scandal, that also involved the HoDs of a few other countries.
  • Flag of Turkey.png Turkey: TNV announced their withdrawal from the contest, this will make it possible to restructure the system of selecting the entries and even come stronger in the future.
