Trademark applications may be submitted electronically at the Bahrain Trademark Office as of February 20, 2017. The new process involves uploading an electronic application to the online system, along with soft copies of the power of attorney and priority document.

The updated procedure follows a recent increase in official fees in Bahrain, which was coupled with the introduction of an electronic Official Gazette, an electronic publication that contains accepted applications and cancelled registrations.

We expect this new practice to pave the way for a smoother trademark registration process.
