Applications Accepted in the Name of Individuals


The Omani Trademarks Registrar has verbally declared new directives to allow the registration of trademarks in the name of individuals. Therefore, it is possible to obtain registration of trademarks in the name of individuals on the basis of submission of a Trade License or Commercial Register or Certificate of Incorporation of any company wherein the name of the individual is listed therein as a partner or manager. In addition to the aforesaid document a power of attorney in the name of the individual applicant with an apostille attestation is also needed.

In the past and prior to the above, registration of trademarks in the name of individuals was prohibited for a period of time.
