E-Filing Introduced

The Kuwait Trademark Office announced that it has undertaken the necessary procedures towards switching filing trademarks to a completely online system. By this, Kuwait becomes the latest GCC country to adopt the online filing system.

The required documents need to be uploaded online and the originals should be submitted to the Office within a period of three months (non-extendable) from the filing date. Failure to comply therewith will result in the lapse of the filed trademark application. However, trademark applications can still be filed electronically without the necessary documents at the time of filing.

The earlier practice of filing trademarks using paper files has been discontinued. Thus, simple copies of colored copies of the legalized POA and priority document in case of priority claim shall fulfill the documentary formalities of filing of trademarks.
