Not able to obtain a PaLM API key

I attempted to secure a PaLM API key from “” as directed by Laurence, but I consistently encounter an ‘unauthorized’ page. Is there a waiting list for this? If so, does anyone know the expected wait time? Alternatively, are there other methods to obtain the key?

I had no problem getting an API key once I entered the MakerSuite

Thanks John_nz. MakerSuite throws the below error for me.

Do you have to enable any APIs or anything like that?

I was able to get a key as well without issue. Perhaps you are in a geographic region where the PaLM API is not supported?

Hello Mike, I am in the UK, and oddly enough, it appears that PaLM is not available here!

Hi Mike, did you have to join the Waiting List first before getting the API key ?

I’m in Germany and having the same issue. Geographically blocked? Would be great if this was documented somewhere.

… same here - any advice would be helpful - thanks!

same issue, I am based in the UK, seems to be US only for now

“The PaLM API and MakerSuite are now available for public preview. For developers based in the U.S., you can access the documentation and sign up to test your own prototypes at no cost.”

I live in Canada, and I have the same issue
