There are 55 European nations, and the qualifying matches ran from March to November 2021. The ten group winners progressed to the finals. The three other places are allocated via playoffs, involving ten runners-up plus the two best-ranked group winners from the 2020-21 UEFA Nations League who did not finish in the top two in their qualifying group: Austria and Czech Republic.

South America (CONMEBOL 4.5 Places)

All ten nations in the qualifying matches play each other home and away. The top four nations qualify directly for the finals, while the fifth-place team goes into an intercontinental playoff against the winners of the AFC playoff, Australia, on June 13. Brazil was the first country to qualify, and Argentina followed five days later, while Ecuador and Uruguay took the final two automatic spots. Peru secured the playoff berth.

North America, Central America, Caribbean (CONCACAF; 3.5 Places)

The qualifying process for the 2022 edition was due to begin in September 2020 and run to September 2021, but the coronavirus pandemic disrupted it. The format was reworked, and the six group winners in the first round progressed. Canada, Mexico, and the United States qualified directly, while Costa Rica secured the playoff spot.
