Licensing for guest users in Entra ID

Copper Contributor



We have Active Directory Premium P1 licenses in our tenant and I'd like to know how does licensing work for guest users in Entra ID. We are pushing MFA through Conditional access and I'm trying to figure out if the guest users will need this license or not for MFA enforcement. I know that if there's a subscription attached to Entra ID, the licensing is based on MAU but there is no subscription in our Entra ID yet. I'm a GA in our tenant and I don't see any subscriptions here. 


Any advice would be appreciated.

If not using the MAU model, the old 1:5 ratio should apply (for each Entra ID Premium license, you get 5 guest users).
