A trademark application has to be filed before the Patent Office (Department of the Board of Trade) by a local agent. A notarised power of attorney authenticated by a Saudi Arabian consulate is necessary. A legalized Power of Attorney is required. Foreign applicants do not need a domestic registration. Multi-class applications are not allowed in Saudi Arabia. Accordingly, a separate application is to be filed for each class of goods/services.
The application process includes a formal examination, an examination of distinctiveness and a search for prior trademarks. It takes approximately 12-14 months from first filing to registration. Before registration the trademark application is published in the “Um-Al Qura” (official gazette of the Government). The opposition period is 90 days from publication date of the application.
