The 2018 World Junior Ice Hockey Championship Division II consisted of two tiered groups of six teams each: the fourth-tier Division IIA and the fifth-tier Division IIB. For each tier, the team which placed first was promoted to the next highest division, while the team which placed last was relegated to a lower division.

The tournaments were a round-robin tournament format, with two points allotted for a win, one additional point for a regulation win, and one point for an overtime or game winning shots loss.

To be eligible as a junior, a player cannot be born earlier than 1998.

Division IIA was held in Dumfries, United Kingdom, while Division IIB was hosted in Belgrade, Serbia.
