Several are expected to be allowed in, setting the scene for angry clashes with anti-fascist protesters who have also been urged to apply for seats.
Mr Griffin's appearance is being compared to the prime-time TV debut of far-right French politician Jean-Marie Le Pen, leader of the Front National.
He saw support for his party double overnight after he was questioned on a leading political programme in France in 1984.
BBC presenter David Dimbleby has been given the green light to question Mr Griffin about everything from the Holocaust to immigration to avoid accusations he is given an easy ride.
Police ready for Question Time trouble
Scotland Yard will mount an unprecedented security operation outside the BBC when Nick Griffin appears on Question Time tomorrow.
Amid fears that anti-racism campaigners could try to storm the BBC Television Centre in West London, up to 300 officers are expected to be on duty.
Dozens more riot-trained officers will be on standby in case trouble flares when the BNP leader appears on the flagship political discussion programme.
