Geographic availability for attending Zoom Events

Last Updated:

While access to Zoom Events is generally available worldwide, whether a user can register for and join an event is determined by which country or region the attendee is located in.

The location of an attendee is used to determine if the user will be prevented from registering for an event due to geo-blocking.

This article covers:


  • Zoom desktop client:
    • Windows: 5.7.6 or higher
    • macOS: 5.7.6 or higher
  • Zoom mobile client
    • iOS: 5.7.6 or higher
    • Android: 5.7.6 or higher
  • Basic user


  • There is a dependency with Windows' Webview package for Windows platform; while version 5.7.6 does support Zoom Events, it may cause a blank lobby experience for attendees.
  • For attendee access to the latest Zoom Events and Webinar features, we highly encourage attendees to update to the latest version of the Zoom desktop client/mobile application.
