Registration for the International Geography Bee Online Regional Finals in Asia & Oceania is now open!
Click here to access the registration form. Tournaments will be added to the form once they are scheduled.
The results of the IGB Online Regional Qualifying Exam can be found on the ORQE site by using your Student ID.
The Online Regional Regional Finals provide an alternate way for students to qualify for the 2022 International Geography Bee Asian Championships in June and the 2022 International Geography Bee Championships in August. Students can certainly still continue to qualify through the Championships Qualifying Exams (only available at our in-person IHBB regional tournaments).
All IGB Regional Finals consist of 3 preliminary rounds of 30 questions in the Varsity and Junior Varsity Divisions (25 in the Middle School and Elementary Divisions) and then 1 final round of 30 (or 25) questions for the top students. All students play in all three of the preliminary rounds; the number who make the final will vary from 3-10 based on turnout in each division.
Aside from the geographic focus, the rules are the same as the regional tournaments of the International History Bee. Please see the History Bee website if you are interested in competing in additional history-themed quiz competitions. A copy of the rules for the IGB Regional Quiz Tournaments is available here. For sample questions to practice with, please see the past questions used at our Championships and Regional Quiz Tournaments.

If you are interested in holding an International Geography Bee in-person Regional Quiz Tournament in your city, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to inquire about details on hosting a tournament. Hosting is largely just a matter of providing the classrooms, and then a certain number of your students can play free of charge.
The participation fee in all cases is $30 USD per student.
The participation fee can be paid via Flywire or otherwise sent by wire transfer (which must be paid in USD) to the account provided on the invoice; a $35 USD wire transfer fee applies regardless of how many students are being registered from a school.
Registration and Payment Deadline: January 12, 2022
Students who cancel their registration for free prior to the registration deadline. Students dropping after the registration deadline owe 100% of their registration fees.
