Apple Developer Program membership is free for organizations that are eligible. Find out if your company is eligible and how to apply for the waiver.


You can ask to have your annually charged Apple Developer Program membership fee waived for a non-profit organization or an accredited educational institution, or a government agency that plans to provide only free applications through the App Store and is located in an area that is eligible. Apple will look into your request and get in touch with the applicant to let them know whether your request has been approved.

Eligible regions: Australia, China mainland, Brazil, Canada, France, South Korea, Germany, Israel, United Kingdom, Italy, Japan, Mexico, United States.

New members

To become a member of the Apple Developer Program at no cost, if you are an eligible business, you must select the option to apply for a fee waiver while you are completing your enrollment. If the waiver is approved, your business is not required to be able to cover the cost of membership after you complete your enrollment.

For existing members of the Apple developers program

Account-holders of organizations that are eligible are able to make the fee waiver at any time prior to their expiration date. The waiver is based on an ID number for tax purposes, also known as a national ID, which is a number issued by the local authorities that identify the business's location within the market.

Some examples include the VAT Number within Europe, as well as the Siret Number in France, the Company Number in Australia, and the State Registry Number in Brazil. In the event that the fee waiver request is granted, the business is no longer required to pay an annual fee at renewal. Refunds in full or part for existing memberships are not offered.
