Twenty-eight countries have a PLR programme, and others are considering adopting one. Canada, the United Kingdom, all the Scandinavian countries, Germany, Austria, Belgium, the Netherlands, Israel, Australia, and New Zealand currently have PLR programmes.

The idea spread slowly from country to country and many nations' PLR programs are quite recent developments.
