Requirements for Legalization of Documents Changed

The Omani Ministry of Foreign Affairs has issued a notification declaring the accession of Oman to the Apostille Convention (Hague Convention Abolishing the Requirements of Legalization of Foreign Public Documents) by virtue of Sultanate Decree No. 47/2009. The Convention has been effective in Oman as of January 30, 2012.

As such, Oman will start accepting Apostille legalization of documents related to trademarks, patents, industrial designs and all other IP related matters. There will be no need for further legalization up to the Omani Consulate as long as the applicant’s home country is a member of the Apostille Convention.
