IEEE offers an electronic membership option to new and renewing members who reside in countries where the per capita Gross National Income (GNI) is US$15,000 or less, as determined by the data published by the World Bank. Though published annually, IEEE uses a three-year average of the GNI for each country to determine eligibility.

Below is a list of the qualifying countries where members can select the electronic membership option priced at US$82-US$98.

Countries marked with an asterisk are eligible for electronic membership priced at US$33-US$47.

Do you reside in a country not on this list? IEEE offers other reduced dues options to members who are unemployed, retired, or meet a minimum income threshold. Learn more about these special circumstances.
