Each National Federation and National Olympic Committee decides their own Olympic qualification criteria for their athletes. Please find here some information on a few countries, as soon as more information is available, we will continue to update this section.

- Triathlon Australia has three automatic auto qualification events:
- Paris Test Event - two athletes on the top 8 can get automatic selection
- Championships Finals Pontevedra - a third athlete finishing in the top 8 can get automatic selection
- If any spots have not been allocated, another WTCS event in early 2024 season can give automatic selection with a top 8 finish

- Any athlete with two top 8 finishes at a WTCS event during the Olympic qualification period gets automatic spots, but at least one of the two top 8 needs to be in the second period of the Olympic Qualification
- A podium at the European Championships means automatic selection

- Top 5 at the Test Event or at the Pontevedra Championships Final gives automatic qualification
- If not achieved, two top 12 places at any WTCS during the Olympic qualification period

- A podium at the Test Event gives automatic spot. A maximum of two athletes on the podium in Paris per gender are eligible.
- Top 8 at the test Event AND top 3 at the Pontevedra Championships Finals gives also an automatic spot
- At the end of 2023 season, a remaining spot can be announced as per discretionary reasons, based on results and podiums at the WTCS events, especially on Olympic distance events
- To confirm their eligibility, all nominated for the team athletes must have a top 6 result on a WTCS in 2024 (top 3 if sprint distance event)

-    Up to 2 athletes who finish in Top 8 at the Test Event
