All Test-playing nations achieve automatic qualification to the tournament, with the remaining places filled by ICC associate member nations through a qualification tournament.
Qualification for the 2007 World Twenty20 came from the results of the first cycle of the ICC World Cricket League - a 50-over format league for non-Test playing nations. The two finalists of the Division One tournament - Kenya and Scotland - qualified for the inaugural World Twenty20 tournament alongside the Test-playing nations. Qualification for subsequent tournaments, beginning with the 2009 event, is achieved through a special event using the twenty20 format.
A World Twenty20 Qualifier was held in 2008 as qualifier for the 2009 World Twenty20 and currently is the main qualification tournament for all the upcoming World Twenty20's tournaments. The 2008 Qualifiers were played between 2 August and 5 August 2008 in Stormont, Belfast in Northern Ireland. The six competing teams were: Bermuda, Canada, Ireland, Kenya, The Netherlands and Scotland, with the top three earning a place at the 2009 World Twenty20 in England. The competition was won by Ireland and the Netherlands, who shared the trophy after rain forced the final to be abandoned without a ball bowled. Both teams qualified for the 2009 finals in England. Due to the withdrawal of Zimbabwe from the competition, the two finalists were joined by third-placed Scotland.
The 2010 Qualifier was the largest so far, with eight competing teams. It was played in the United Arab Emirates from 9–13 February 2010 with the top two teams progressing to the 2010 tournament in the Caribbean. The eight competing teams were: Afghanistan, Canada, Ireland, Kenya, the Netherlands, Scotland, UAE and the USA.The competition was won by Afghanistan who qualified along with Ireland who were second.

The International Cricket Council's executive committee voted for the hosts of the tournament after examining bids from the nations which expressed an interest in holding a Twenty20 World Championship. After South Africa in 2007, England and West Indies hosted the tournament in 2009 and 2010 respectively. The next tournament will be hosted by Sri Lanka in 2012. The ICC decided that South Africa and England should host the first two tournaments as they were the earliest adopters of the format. Bangladesh will host the 2014 ICC World Twenty20 Championship.
