Other countries[]

Eligibility for potential participation in the Own Eurovision Song Contest requires a national broadcaster with active OEBU membership that would be able to broadcast the contest. As in every edition, an invitation to all the members has been sent in order to confirm whether they will participate or not. The following list of countries declined to state their reasons as shown below.

  • Flag of Albania.svg Albania:
  • Flag of Austria.svg Austria: Austrian broadcaster ÖRF has just confirmed that Austria won't participate in the 56th edition of OESC. The main reason for their withdrawal is that ÖRF doesn't want to participate in a possible quarterfinal. A return next edition is not excluded.
  • Flag of Denmark.svg Denmark: The head of delegation announced that the country would be taking a one edition break.
  • Flag of Liechtenstein.svg Liechtenstein: The head of delegation stated that the country would not return to the contest due to them leaving the position. A return in the next edition is not ruled out as a new HoD is expected to be hired by then.
  • Flag of Lithuania.svg Lithuania:
  • Flag of Luxembourg.svg Luxembourg: The resignation of the Monegasque head of delegation led to the Luxembourger delegation take over Monaco. However, as a new delegation couldn't be appointed, Luxembourg is ineligible to compete this edition.
  • Scotland.png Scotland: Since the acceptance of Gibraltar in the contest, Scotland believes that it's the right time to finally return independently. Scotland has taken part since its debut in the 3rd edition, until they merged into the United Kingdom in the 44th edition. The head of delegation states that United Kingdom is not interested in the Scottish music, making them a void and forgetting about their beloved music industry.
  • Flag of Slovakia.svg Slovakia: The head of delegation announced that the country would be taking a one edition break.
  • Flag of Ukraine.svg Ukraine:
