How to register a trademark in the UAE?

Not so long ago, a trademark in the UAE could only be registered directly with the UAE Ministry of Economy. However, after the UAE start a member of the Madrid System, this became possible within the framework of the international trademark registration.

An important step before beginning the process of registering a designation as a trademark in the UAE is the notarization of a power of attorney to represent the interests of the applicant by a UAE patent attorney. Without notarization of the power of attorney, it will not be possible to register a trademark. In addition, the process itself can be carried out exclusively by a UAE patent attorney. To quickly sign a power of attorney, you can use the electronic notarization service. However, the digital notary service is not available to non-residents of the UAE. What to do in this case, ask us in Telegram.

Important! A legalized power of attorney provides authority to register a trademark not only in the UAE, but also in Qatar, Oman, Kuwait and Bahrain. Therefore, if you need to register in these countries, you do not need to additionally look for an attorney.

Even though an availability search is not optional, It is highly recommended to conduct a trademark availability search. A search will reveal the existence of an identical or confusingly similar trademark that could pose a threat to the trademark application during the examination.

To conduct an availability search we have to identify the classification under which your business falls. The UAE trademark database search is available exclusively to IP professionals and is subject to a fee. The cost of conducting an availability search in one class for one TM is USD 250 (Government Fees USD 100 + Professional fees USD 150). To quickly order a service, write to us in Telegram or email:
