Why Does IAH Have Different Country Fee Bands?

IAH has offered different fee bands for many years, offering lower fee rates to individuals and organisations who live or are based in non “high income” countries and territories (note, students have a different discount). Our policy is based on World Bank economic data and is reviewed by Council periodically.

The classification of countries and territories is the one adopted by the World Bank. As stated by the World Bank, the term country, used interchangeably with economy, does not imply political independence but refers to any territory for which authorities report separate social or economic statistics. Click here for information about how the World Bank classifies countries and territories. IAH does not accept any responsibility for the classification of the countries or territories defined by the World Bank or other parties.

How does it work?

IAH uses four categories for countries and territories:

  • High Income
  • Middle income
  • Transitional (ones whose class has recently changed; IAH phases fee changes for these)
  • Lower Income
